Twenty-one-year-old Christopher Ziobro and 18-year-old Ghaias Mirza were scheduled to make their first appearance on Monday. It was not known if either man had retained an attorney.

The Jersey Journal reports police officers responded to a Bayonne home on Saturday afternoon after receiving reports that people were throwing plastic bottles from a third-floor fire escape, and the bottles were exploding.

Resident Robert Dunne, 46, told the newspaper he thought his stove had “blown up.”

Dunne said he looked out of the kitchen window and saw smoke and ash floating outside, and a white residue was covering the fire escape.

Dunne described the containers as plastic bottles and gallon milk jugs. He said he heard people laughing and voices yelling “make them bigger.”

Police would not say what was in the bottles and what was used to create the explosions, citing the ongoing investigation. No injuries were reported in the incident.

Besides Bayonne police, the Jersey City police department’s bomb squad and members of a federal joint terrorism task force also responded to the scene.
