LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police have stopped and evacuated an Amtrak train in the San Fernando Valley to search for suspicious baggage.

Police Lt. John Romero tells The Associated Press that the investigation was spurred by a woman who boarded in Simi Valley late Saturday night. He says a person who accompanied the woman but did not board with her said something to a train employee about the woman and her bags.

Romero says the employee grew concerned and told authorities.

The train is being held as it sits on Union Pacific tracks just south of a Van Nuys station while officers check the baggage.

Romero says the check was entirely precautionary and did not involve a specific threat.

It was not immediately clear how many people were on the train or how many cars were involved.
