An official from the PM's office also told reporters that police were still investigating the man's intentions, and it was not yet clear if he was carrying explosives.
Turkish media had previously reported on Thursday that police had shot and wounded a man suspected of carrying bombs, but Reuter's PM official source denied the shot allegations.
Television footage from Ankara Thursday further showed the police barricading the streets near the PM's office. Erdogan was reportedly not in the building at the time of the incidents.
