“Limited information is available at this time,” the Nation said in a release. “But the CNPD has confirmed that for several days, these individuals have detonated hand thrown incendiary weapons and other explosive devices in the area during the early morning hours.”

The devices are described as Molotov cocktails.

“The CNPD and other agencies are currently investigating this criminal activity.
