NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There was a brief security scare Sunday amid the beefed up police presence citywide since Monday’s fatal Boston Marathon bombings.
Police later gave the all-clear after a man with a backpack riding a bicycle through the Run for the Parks 4-miler caused the bomb squad to be called in.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, police stopped the man. Inside his backpack, officers found a box with a toggle switch. Inside was a bottle with wires and a timing device.
