Man sets off explosive at Cheesecake Factory in Pasadena; no injuries

Authorities then searched the restaurant and located a "detonated homemade pyrotechnic device", the Police Department stated.

Officers from the Pasadena Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Bomb Squad arrived on the scene after receiving a call about an explosion at the restaurant.

Police are searching for a man who set off an explosive device in a Cheesecake Factory restaurant packed with customers, according to KTLA.

Diners at the Cheesecake Factory in Pasadena were given a scare when a man tossed a homemade explosive inside the restaurant and fled the scene.

"It wasn't meant to be destructive in the sense that it didn't have any fragments or shrapnel", Gourdikian said. They say there's no clear motive yet, but naturally Twitter's brilliant armchair detectives are already connecting the dots. It was meant to make a loud bang, which is what it did.

The man was wearing all black clothing and a black beanie, according to the Police Department. Still, he said police are taking the incident seriously, according to the Star-News.

Federal authorities were alerted to the incident, police told KABC-TV, but local authorities are handling the investigation.

Authorities could not be reached Friday morning for additional comment.
