‘Cherry bomb’ thrown inside Milk & Honey Market

November 11, 2014

A large firecracker was tossed into Milk and Honey Market (45th and Baltimore) tonight, according to various reports. The incident happened around 6 p.m. when an unidentified person threw the firecracker, described as a “cherry bomb,” inside the shop through the open door and ran away. It went off right inside the front door area and filled the place with smoke, according to witnesses. There were customers inside the shop when the incident took place. Black marks could be seen on the wood floor where the device exploded.

Milk and Honey owner Annie Baum Stein says that it was “crazy” but “everyone and everything is fine.” Both the police and UCD responded to her call immediately after the incident and the staff did a great job calming the customers and securing the store.

There’s no more information available at this time.
