Police: Grenade that prompted evacuation of South Philadelphia block was 'a toy'

The grenade found in an alley on the 1800 block of Titan Street in Point Breeze was hollowed out.

An entire Point Breeze block was evacuated this evening after police found what was believed to be a grenade in an alley on the 1800 block of Titan Street.

The bomb squad was called to the street around 4:45 p.m. They determined 15 minutes later that the grenade was "hollowed out, basically a toy," Lt. Ray Evers said.

No injuries were reported.
