The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a January church bombing in El Monte, the agency reminded the public Saturday.

The El Monte Police Department received a 911 call at about 1 a.m. on Jan. 23 regarding an explosion at the First Works Baptist Church at 2600 Tyler Ave.

Authorities said a male and female suspect were seen smashing a church window, then lighting an object and throwing it inside the church shortly before the explosion. The suspects fled on foot to a vehicle, which they entered before fleeing the scene.

The FBI’s Los Angeles field office urged anyone with information regarding the incident to call them at 310-477-6565.
