Man throws explosive device at Anaheim Hills apartment, injuring woman – Orange County Register

A woman was injured after a man apparently threw an explosive device at her Anaheim Hills apartment on Tuesday, officials announced on Friday, July 8.

The woman was upstairs in her kitchen at around 5:45 a.m. when she heard a noise downstairs near the front door. She initially thought her cats knocked something over, the Anaheim Police Department said in a press release.

As she walked down the stairs, she realized it was an explosive device with a lit fuse, Anaheim Police Sgt. Shane Carringer said. The woman picked it up to try to clear the fuse, but the device exploded in her hands.

She ran upstairs for help and was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center with serious injuries to her hands and feet, Carringer said.

An explosive device’s fuse also burns internally, making it difficult to know when the explosive device will actually detonate. “We advise anyone who sees such a device to run away immediately and call for help,” he said.

The condo is located in a gated community in Anaheim Hills at Block 8000 of East Far Canyon Way.

Ring camera footage from a neighbor caught the suspect, who police say is a man, walking toward the victim’s home wearing a backpack, a dark gray hoodie, black jeans and black sneakers.

Glass from the front window of the apartment can be heard, and as the suspect walks away, a loud explosion with smoke can be heard and seen on the footage. He was last seen traveling south from the Far Canyon Way on Horizon View Drive near the entrance/exit gate of the complex.

The type of device used – whether homemade or not – was not immediately clear; no possible motive. The investigations are ongoing.

Police are asking anyone who may witness the incident or who can identify the suspect to contact Detective Cavaness at 714-765-1557 or ccavaness@anaheim.net.
