In the wake of the recent terrorist attack which took place earlier this morning, the NYPD has been scouring the city for any and all signs of which organization may have orchestrated this—and while it may not be related, the NYPD arrested a man yesterday in Queens, and his behavior is troubling, considering today’s terror attack.
Yesterday, the New York City Police Department arrested a man in Queens, and while taking him to a police car in handcuffs, he was chanting “Allahu Akbar,” a phrase terrorists scream during their attacks.
Less than 24 hours later, a terrorist from Brooklyn carried out a failed bombing in the Port Authority bus station, near Times Square. It is not clear if the two incidents are related, but the coincidence cannot be ignored.
Victor Medina of Silence is Consent previously reported on the terrorist attack which happened this morning, noting that:
A suspect who was reportedly inspired by ISIS is in custody after an explosion in New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal.
One person was in custody after an explosion near New York City’s Port Authority bus terminal during Monday morning’s rush hour — a blast that prompted mass chaos and halted multiple subway lines, the NYPD said.
The suspect has injuries that are not life threatening, The Associated Press reported. Three other people suffered injuries that are not life threatening, officials said.
The suspected bomber was a 27-year-old ISIS-inspired Bangladeshi national who lived in Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told The New York Post. The suspect allegedly packed the 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack into the right side of his jacket, but the device exploded prematurely. The suspect told police he made the bomb at the electrical company where he works, The New York Post reported.
Truth Feed News reports on a new video, however, that has just come out—of a second terrorist being arrested, shouting common radical Islamic phrases:
In light of the Monday morning explosion at the NYC Port Authority, the NYPD has one reported suspect in custody, and is scouring the city.
They made an arrest in Queens, New York which was captured on video.
The footage shows police taking a “foreign man” into custody wearing an “I LOVE NEW YORK” t-shirt, and screaming “Allahu Akbar!”
