Another bomb scare took over New York City this Thursday, when police found a suspicious package at Robert De Niro's restaurant in Tribeca.

A source told CNN that the package looked much like the pipe bomb packages which were mailed yesterday to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Maxine Waters, Joe Biden, George Soros, and John Brennan at the media company's own offices.

Like the others, the suspicious manila envelope had six American-flag stamps in the front, and the return address was that of Democratic US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida. Investigator say there is no reason to believe she sent any of them.

Police are currently investigating the package found on the seventh floor of Tribeca Enterprises, De Niro's film and TV production company, where he also owns a restaurant.

The actor has not opened up about the incident, though New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called the explosives an "act of terror."

RadarOnline.com readers know police have yet to discover the sender's identity, but luckily, none of the homemade bombs have detonated or harmed anyone.
