FBI seeks man in Pasadena Cheesecake Factory restaurant incendiary incident

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Police in Southern California have released surveillance video of a man being sought for questioning after someone threw a homemade incendiary device into a crowded restaurant last month.

Pasadena police and the FBI announced a $20,000 reward Friday for information in the case.

People scrambled to get out of the Cheesecake Factory restaurant but no one was injured in the Feb. 2 incident. Police have said the device made a loud bang and emitted smoke.

Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez says finding the man seen on video from a nearby supermarket will help investigators determine a motive in the case.

Deirdre Fike, the assistant director in charge of the FBI in Los Angeles says there’s no evidence the incident was a terrorist act.

No arrests have been made.
