A PSNI statement said that a viable device was located close to commercial premises on the Whitewell Road.
A number of homes were evacuated after the alert was sparked on Wednesday shortly before 11pm.
Army bomb experts made the area safe and the last residents were allowed to return home at 5am on Thursday.
St Mary's Star of the Sea Church Hall was made available to people affected.
"One line of inquiry is that the device may have been thrown at police," the statement read.
We can't go back to the bad old days of people having to be evacuated from their homes.
Pat Convery, SDLP
Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín said the alert did nothing but cause disruption for the community.
She said: "Families were forced out of their homes after midnight last night and did not get back home again until near 6am.
"It was fortunate that a community hall was available for those families affected.
"Whoever left this device should explain to local residents what they have achieved by forcing families from their homes on a cold, wet night.
"The people of this area want to get on with their lives and don't want criminal elements, including those masquerading as republicans, bringing disruption and fear."
SDLP councillor Pat Convery also condemned the alert.
He said: "This is something that is not needed and serves no purpose particularly in this community.
"The reality is that it is very traumatic for those involved particularly senior citizens and young families - they just didn't know what to do.
"This is totally unacceptable and if anyone knows anything about this, or any other incident, they should contact police."
Police investigations are ongoing.
