3 charged after explosive devices shot into home

Posted: Updated:

MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Three central New Jersey men face numerous charges after they allegedly fired several explosive devices at a neighbor's home, setting it on fire.

Middlesex County prosecutors say 20-year-old Matthew Debski and brothers Johnathan and Michael Cavallo, ages 18 and 22, each face 21 counts, including arson and aggravated assault. It's not clear what sparked the attack in the Monroe Township neighborhood early Saturday, but authorities say it was intentional.

Five people were sleeping in the home when two explosive devices were fired at it around 4:40 a.m. A third device was fired as police and rescue workers arrived, but it didn't strike the home.

No injuries were reported.

Debski and the Cavallo brothers were each being held on $150,000 bail. It wasn't known Sunday if they had retained lawyers.
