There’s been another bomb hoax in Brockton.

Someone called in a suspicious device in the middle of  Albion St. at approximately 7:00 a.m. Saturday.

Brockton police and fire, the state police bomb squad, and A.T.F. responded to the scene.

A similar device was found on the Howard St. Bridge on Friday.

No one was injured in either incident.

Authorities said both devices looked like pipe bombs but were harmless.

There were no arrests as of Sunday afternoon.
