German police warned of an an 'imminent' terror attack on the city of Munich on Thursday night.

In a Twitter message posted around 10:45pm local time, the Munich Police Force warned New Year's revelers to avoid train stations and crowds. Munich police said they have also evacuated two train stations, NBC News reports.

Local media reports that, according to police, the terror threat "may involve several groups of people planning to carry out attacks in multiple locations in Munich," according to BNO News.

 It was not immediately clear if local New Year's festivities would be cancelled. 

The warning comes after Belgian police arrested six terror suspects allegedly connected to a New Year's Eve terror plot in the capital of Brussels.
