Cheesecake Factory Explosion, PD and FBI Announce up to $20,000 Reward

PASADENA – The explosion at the Cheesecake Factory at 2 West Colorado Boulevard on the evening of February 2nd prompted a collaboration of Pasadena Police Detectives and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents to actively pursue investigative leads.

When police officers had located a detonated homemade pyrotechnic device, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad responded to the scene and rendered the location safe. No customers or employees were seriously injured. Witnesses described the suspect as a male, possibly Hispanic or Middle Eastern, 6’0” tall and thin, with a heavy beard and wearing all black clothing and a black beanie.

Extensive canvassing of Colorado Boulevard businesses’ security videos revealed a suspect entering a Pasadena business after the explosion. The unidentified suspect wore a white shirt, and carried black or dark clothing which he discarded in a trash can.

The PD detectives and the FBI agents hope a video recording of the man who is suspected of having committed the Cheesecake Factory explosion, and a reward of up to $20,000 will prompt witnesses to come forward with the suspect’s identification.

Please do not take action to detain or contact the suspect. This person should be considered dangerous. If seen, please contact local law enforcement promptly. Persons may also contact the Pasadena Police Department 24/7 at (626) 744-4241.
