Bomb Scare At The Punch

Police found what appeared to be an unexploded hand grenade at The Punch’s Farrington Road office, which was vandalised Monday.

Police Superintendent Stephen Dean said vandals struck the Punch Publications Limited building late Monday night.

No one was in the tabloid’s office at the time.

At 11:45 p.m. police received a report that the alarm had been activated at the building located on Farrington Road and Ajax Street.

When officers arrived on the scene they discovered that a front glass door had been smashed.

After further examining the immediate interior of the building, police found an unexploded hand grenade.

The device is being subjected to forensic examination to determine precisely what it is.

The Punch’s publisher, Ivan Johnson, who was made aware of the situation, is out of the country.

Investigations are ongoing.
