Four Fla. teenagers were arrested on the evening of March 17 after allegedly tossing an acid bomb onto the front porch of one couple’s Lake Mary home.

Denise Paquette, one of the homeowners, told Orange County police that around 9:30 p.m. on Monday, she head a "loud bang" and then watched as her front porch filled up with black smoke, according to The Orlando Sentinel .

Paquette also told police that she witnessed a white pickup truck leaving the scene.

After deputies got to the home, located on Cherry Lake Way in Lake Mary, they discovered the"12-ounce plastic bottle containing an undetermined substance," that had been thrown onto Paquette’s front porch.

A spokesperson for the Seminole County Sheriff's Office, Kim Cannaday, said that deputies caught up with the teens on Interstate 4 shortly after the alleged bombing.

Deputies transported the teenagers to the Orange County Juvenile Assessment Center for questioning. The names of the alleged acid bombers have not yet been released.

Deputies are looking into why the teens may have targeted Paquette's home for their assault. As of this writing, there is no known motive for why the teens singled out this particular home for their bombing, according to Fox News in Orlando.

Fortunately, no one was harmed as a result of the homemade acid bomb being tossed at the couple's home.
