A report Monday claimed a note left near one of the unexploded bombs in New York City over the weekend made references to the Boston Marathon bombers, who used similar explosive devices in 2013.

"Well, one of the bombs that didn't explode on 27th street, Anderson, had a note with some handwritten — it was a handwritten note and it basically made reference to previous terrorists, including the Boston bombers," CNN's Evan Perez told Anderson Cooper.

"Now, investigators are looking at this and are now analyzing this to see, perhaps, if this might explain a motive for carrying out these attempted bombings."

Perez noted the bombs in New York City and the two bombs at the Boston Marathon three and half years ago were all pressure-cooker bombs packed with lethal ball bearings.

The Boston Marathon bombing resulted in three deaths and 280 people being wounded. Two police officers were shot and killed by the bombers in the days following the attack.

Twenty-nine people were wounded in Saturday night's bombing in Manhattan. No one was hurt in the New Jersey incident earlier in the day. Ahmad Khan Rahami is suspected of carrying out the attacks. He was wounded in a gun battle with police Monday.
