The girl said her brother did not know the other boy, who threw the device Monday just as her brother was walking by.

The family tells The Sun that Nicholas was treated at a hospital but suffered no permanent damage to his eyes.

Police said the juvenile boy who allegedly threw the device faces charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and unlawful possession of an explosive device.
