The Nassau County Police Department is asking the public's help in an investigation of a serious incident that occurred last month.

According to detectives, at least two males were in a park believed to be in the Farmingdale area on Oct. 15 when they used an explosive device to set off at least two explosions. 

The first explosion appears to be from the ground and the second explosion was from within a garbage container. There do not appear to be any injuries at this time.

The Nassau County Police Department reminds its residents that the use of explosives, including fireworks, is illegal and extremely dangerous.

Detectives request anyone with information regarding these incidents or anyone that can help identify these individuals to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
