MAGUINDANAO - A hand grenade was lobbed at a police car in Barangay Mother Labu-labu in Shariff Aguak town in Maguindanao Friday morning.

According to Shariff Aguak Municipal Police Deputy Chief Police Insp. Michael Tinio, they received information that a suspected bomb, placed inside a sack, was left at a car wash in the said area around 4 a.m.

While securing the area, they noticed a stone-like object thrown around 4 meters away at a private vehicle the police used. An explosion ensued.

No one was reported hurt or injured in the explosion.

Tinio said they are still conducting a deeper probe to determine the motive behind the incident.

On Tuesday, two other grenades were lobbed at the house of former Maguindanao Board Member Yasser Ampatuan in the same village. The grenades did not explode.
