NEW YORK (Reuters) - Parts of the Credit Suisse headquarters in New York City were evacuated on Wednesday due to a suspicious package, police said.

"We have a report of a suspicious package in the building so we're investigating. We are evacuating at least part of (the building)," a police spokesman said.

Last week, an envelope containing explosives was sent to the head of Deutsche Bank Josef Ackermann in Frankfurt but it was intercepted before it reached him.
