Police were dispatched to the 1900 block of Wimberly Street at about 11:45 p.m. Monday night after the victim reported that a chemical bomb went off in the backyard of her home.

Police found the remnants of two homemade bombs in the backyard. The devices "appeared to be constructed of a plastic bottle, tin foil and an unknown liquid."

The victim told police she suspected that it was Hilton who detonated the bomb because of an "ongoing feud."
