Navotas City Mayor John Ray Tiangco said an unidentified man hurled the two grenades in the area behind the Navotas police station around 4 a.m., damaging the signage in front of the city jail.

Tiangco said the victim, identified as Agnes Cruz, sustained a foot injury and was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment.
