SAN FRANCISCO —
A man with an inactive grenade was arrested Saturday after he triggered a bomb scare in San Francisco’s Mission District, authorities said.
San Francisco police Sgt. Dennis Toomer said police received reports of a man who appeared to be armed with a hand bomb in the 2200 block of Mission Street at around 9:55 a.m.
Police K-9s and a bomb squad were called out to conduct a sweep of the area, where a suspect carrying a grenade was located, he said.
During the investigation, Mission Street between 18th and 19th streets was closed.
Toomer said officers arrested the man, whose name is not being released, and recovered the hand bomb, which was found to be inactive.
"There was no danger to the public," the sergeant said.
