6:02 am
on a tuesday morning waking up to a situation here, south of writ even house square, the explosion around 18th and pine and here's is what closed, 17th, 18th, 19th, lombard, pine, views all in the area just south of rittenhouse square and around this investigation here, at 18th and pine. we will go to him this a moment with the latest but getting ready to come through and waking up this morning in this area this is what is going on down here south of rittenhouse square. septa's route 17 bus detoured this morning, a fire location in upper darby, industrial drive, at penn street. there is a fire at 4800 block of mulberry with some local detours. here's a live look at i-95, time to make doughnuts hitting southbound between cottman and center city. mass transit other than route 17 bus looking good, thomas and alex, back to you. lets get back to the area you were just talking about where within person has been
6:03 am
rushed to the hospital after a package exploded in rittenhouse square. >> wild scene, we have been talking about all morning, in fact, we were first ones to break it on the fox 29 morning news. bob mentioned 18th and pine. our steve keeley out there. we are hearing something about an inhaler, steve. >> reporter: thinks first floor apartment, everybody that was in the building that was evacuated is allowed back in the building as are tenants on the buildings on each side. as bob kelly said all streets are still shut down because it is still being treated as a crime scene. they don't necessity whether someone sent this guy a bomb or he got the up hailer that he normally gets delivered and his inhaler blew up. police tell us here on the the scene that inhalers when they get delivered to you, do sometimes explode. here's chief inspector scott small. >> initial information from the six two-year old victim's roommate, was that he opened up, a package that he received in the mail about 5:00 p.m. on
6:04 am
friday. package was delivered on monday. so 5:00 p.m. monday the package was delivered. the victim, didn't open up the package until sometime before 4:00 a.m. and there was an explosion when the package was opened causing injuries to both of his hand and his chest. >> reporter: it wasn't a huge explosion, man opened it up over the oven range in the kitchen that range is damaged, broken glass in the kitchen, roommate wasn't hurt and there were no windows blown out of the apartment building. i talk to the neighbor outside not evacuated but outside walking the dog across the street and said he didn't hear anything explode but his dog started barking as well as his neighbor's dog. maybe dogs had boater hearing than his human hearing. they are at the jefferson a close by hospital and he was conscious after the explosion, in fact, went to the bathroom, to start cleaning up, and there is blood in the bathroom
6:05 am
police told us. so he wasn't even unconscious. so it wasn't that big of an explosion fortunately for him and a strange case, alex, thomas because i have never heard of inhalers exploding before. i have plenty of friend that have inhalers n our news room if you you look in peoples desk they have inhalers at work and i had no idea these things could explode. especially why would it explode just opening up the package. that is something new to me. i'm sure new to a lot of the viewers today that inhalers can explode but this guy gets inhalers delivered to him and that is a possibility here. if it is not that then it is something more sinister, but you wonder why anybody would send a six two-year old guy on pine street anything explosive. so let's hope it is just an accident and nothing worse than that but until we necessity for sure, federal investigators and philadelphia bomb squad leading this investigation still here on the scene, several blocks, still shut down. >> a lot of agencies involve. you have to wonder about the item, all right, steve. we are following more

6:07 am
there could be more victims who came in contact with this youth group leader here at this church. that is the bad news that it happened here. good news he is no longer working here according to church leaders. man we're talking about former youth group leader 22-year old michael walusimbi, the bensalem man turned himself in yesterday and faces a slew of sexual charges. prosecutors alleged he attempted to sexually assault two girls, 13 and 15 years old. details are graphic. back in december, the 13 year-old told police youth group leader held her arms behind her back, bent her over face first over a table, pulled down her pants and rubbed himself against her. month later a five-year old told authorities a similar story and said man told her some day she would call him a pedophile. the girl says she was able to kick free before anything else had happened. church leaders, of course, are very shock and stunned. authorities do believe that there may be more victims and they are encouraging anyone who encountered him to come forward. judge set bail at $50,000 and
