A suspicious package has been sent to Robert de Niro's New York City restaurant, the New York Police Department has said.

A package and device was sent to Tribeca Grill, a restaurant the actor owns in Lower Manhattan, a spokesman for the force told Business Insider early Thursday.

The premises was unoccupied when the package arrived, the spokesman said.

None of the devices detonated and no one was injured, NBC reported, citing law-enforcement officials.

Several explosives have been sent by mail across the country to prominent Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump since this Monday. Packages have been addressed to people including former president Barack Obama and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The Tribeca Grill package is still under investigation, and police have not linked it to the other explosives received around the country this week.
