BROOKLYN — Train service on the 2, 3, 4 and 5 lines was snarled briefly Tuesday night because of a police investigation in Brooklyn, according to the MTA.

The investigation at the President Street station, in Crown Heights left no trains running into Brooklyn on those lines and seriously disrupted service within the borough for more than an hour beginning around 8 p.m.

According to the agency's website, there was no 2 train service in both directions from Flatbush Avenue to Atlantic Avenue.

There was also no 3 train service from New Lots Avenue to Atlantic Avenue.

Service on the 4 train was suspended in both directions from Utica Avenue to Atlantic Avenue and 5 trains were not running from Flatbush Avenue to Atlantic Avenue.

According to the MTA, downtown 4 and 5 trains were terminating at Bowling Green and downtown 2 and 3 trains were ending their run at Chambers Street.

Normal service, with residual delays, resumed around 9:30 p.m.

Police did not immediately have any information on the incident.
