U.S police have released a photo Monday of a man they are looking for in connection with the weekend explosion in Manhattan that injured 29 people and continued to investigate whether a series of bombs found in New York and New Jersey were related.
The FBI released a wanted poster for 28 year old Ahmad Khan Rahami- a naturalized U.S. citizen of Afghan descent. His last known address is listed in Elizabeth, N.J., and the poster warns that Rahami “should be considered armed and dangerous.”
Rahami’s apartment above a fried chicken restaurant has been raided by authorities investigating the explosion and the history and connections of the wanted man.
“This is someone who was likely involved in one way or another” with the explosion in the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told CNN’s New Day. “We need to get this guy right away.”
Rahami is believed to be the man seen in surveillance footage Saturday night in Chelsea. Authorities have also stated that Physical evidence links Rahami to explosive devices in New York and New Jersey, the source told NBC News.
Over 30 people were injured in the blast, but fortunately, nobody was killed in the terrorist blast. The urgency to catch Rahami is high, before he strikes again.
