It is day two of a bomb scare at the same house! The bomb squad first found itself on Rossini Street on the east side near eight mile Thursday and they were back there again Friday. That visit was even more worrisome. The police tape is everywhere here after the block was shut down this afternoon for the second time in two days. It had to do with a foreclosed home. This one with the boards on the windows and an angry man who appears willing to do whatever he needed to keep people away - starting with pipe bombs.
The bomb squad arrived Friday after it learned from the man they arrested here yesterday there was more bomb making material and more bombs. It wasn't in the foreclosed home, but in the basement of the home next door where the squatter had moved with the owner's permission.
Catorey Norwood lives across the street and she calls the past couple of days crazy.
What neighbors are saying
"I've been gone away from for two days I left and came back from the store and told me I couldn't go home because they found another bomb on my block, and that's a shame."
Take a look at this hole in the particle board on the foreclosed home's front windows. Police tell Local 4 the unidentified former homeowner used to peer out these peep holes to keep anyone away who might come to take his home from him. Catorey says he was very serious about anyone setting foot on the lawn.
"Chased 'em away, threaten 'em ya know tell 'em it was his home, that's all I saw. Did he have a gun or weapon. I have never seen him with a gun or weapon or anything of the kind."
This scene, of a suited bomb squad officer taking a pipe bomb away from a neighbor's home will keep you up at night and it did Catorey. She still feels better this scary situation is now apparently over.
"I do have a son and that would have been very terrifying to hear an explosion because we have a good block, no trouble really ever happens on this block."
Police make an arrest
The man under arrest and remaining unidentified tonight is 48-years-old. There is no word on criminal charges. Detroit police tell Local 4 they took all of the bombs and the bomb making materials away for detonation at chandler park, where they blew up the first pipe bomb yesterday.
