A San Francisco woman was enjoying her newly purchased home in Noe Valley when she came across the most unexpected housewarming gift: a hand grenade.

On Monday at about 3 p.m., the woman was cleaning out a bedroom cabinet inside her home on the unit block of Fountain Street when she found the explosive.

Naturally, she called police, who arrived with the bomb squad.

Officer Albie Esparza told SF Weekly that the grenade was immediately disposed of and nobody was injured.

It's not clear how the grenade got there.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
