Bayonne Police are questioning two young men taken into custody this afternoon after allegedly detonating several small explosions inside an apartment on 33rd Street.

Cops say Christopher Ziobro was allegedly experimenting with explosives when he set off two small home made bombs on the fire escape of his top floor apartment on 33rd Street.

The 21-year-old man and an 18-year-old pal, Ghaias Mirza, told cops they got the idea to build a bomb from a Youtube video.

Neighbors were not amused.

Bob Dunne who lives in the apartment directly below the explosions says his apartment was shaken and his windows covered in ash after the two loud blasts.

Cops including bomb squad personnel carefully searched the apartment and removed items including a computer.

The investigation is continuing and charges are pending.
