The Philadelphia Police Department has released surveillance camera footage of an explosion last night at Oriental Kitchen, a Francisville takeout near St. Joe's Prep.

The incident occurred last night, August 20, at 8:40 p.m., when a teenage boy entered the restaurant, "placed an explosive device in small access panel in the wall of the store and fled." No injuries were reported, and there is no word on the extent of the damages sustained by the restaurant. Police are still searching for the suspect.
