San Jose Teens Detained In Homemade Bomb Attacks

Two teenage boys are facing felony charges for allegedly tossing homemade bombs into a high school homecoming dance and a girl's sweet 16 party.

The pair, ages 16 and 17, allegedly copied the bombs -- water bottles filled with chlorine and alcohol -- from videos posted on YouTube.

The birthday girl, according to authorities, suffered burns when she picked up a bottle in her backyard and it exploded Saturday night.

Seven other partygoers were taken to the hospital or treated by paramedics.

Police believe the same boys threw a similar chemical bomb at the Pioneer High homecoming dance, also Saturday.

None of the 700 students there was injured.

The two suspects have been booked on suspicion of assault with a
deadly weapon.
