Pasadena, California — The Cheesecake Factory was struck by a homemade explosive device on Thursday night.
It all started when a man was seen tossing a bomb through a window. It landed in the dining room during the busy evening dinner hours. According to eye witnessed the bomb barely detonated. Thankfully no one was hurt, but when police arrived they immediately evacuated the restaurant.
Police officers on the scene discovered the detonated homemade device. It did not make a substantial impact, probably due to poor design, said an official at the scene.
According to local TV station KABC, witnesses saw the suspect running from the scene after tossing the bomb into the restaurant. The suspect has been described a male of either Hispanic or Middle Eastern descent, 6 feet tall, thin build and heavy beard. He was wearing all black clothing.
The Pasadena attack comes on the heels of unrest in Berkley, California where radical far-left anarchist groups have rioted and destroyed property.
The Cheesecake Factory said in a statement on the attack, “Thankfully, none of our guests or staff was injured. Law enforcement is actively investigating the incident and we hope to reopen in Pasadena on Friday, as usual.”
