Authorities said they were lying in wait for two people in connection with an explosion on Thursday of an "improvised explosive device" at an Indian restaurant in Canada.

The explosion at Bombay Bhel restaurant, in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga, occurred around 10:30 p.m. local time; two people, who wore hooded sweatshirts and had their faces covered, entered and left the device before taking off from the scene, authorities said.

Police said it did not look like the explosion was related to terrorism or it was a hate crime.

"There is no indication that this is an act of terrorism, there is no indication that this is a hate crime at this time," said Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans. "All police resources are now being used to locate the people responsible for this horrendous act."
