AKRON, Pa. (WHTM) – Rodney Steininger showed ABC 27 News the damage inside the bedroom of his apartment on North 10th Street.
“It knocked (out) the insulation and the plaster,” he said.
Authorities said a cast iron cap from a pipe bomb wound up in his bed after rifling through a second-floor wall.
Fortunately, he was downstairs when it happened.
“It scared the crap out of me,” Steininger told ABC 27 News. “I thought something exploded.”
The bomb came through Steininger’s home on Nov. 27.
Steininger told ABC 27 that since the incident, members of The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been in the woods behind his apartment looking for clues.
A neighbor told Steininger that shortly after the explosion, they saw teenagers scatter into the same woods.
“He said he saw one with fingers in his ears,” Steininger said. “Apparently he knew something was going to go off.”
Police said they don’t think Steininger was targeted.
Anyone with information is asked to call Akron police at 717-859-6600.
