Akayed Ullah Suspected Of NYC Terror Attempt At NYC Port Authority
A man is in custody for an attempted terror attack today in New York City. Police report that the 27-year-old suspect is Akayed Ullah who was badly injured when an improvised “low-tech explosive device” that was held on him with Velcro and zip-ties exploded. He’s been dubbed “Isis inspired” and police confirm that the man who’s originally from Bangladesh, had a Brooklyn address.
He’s now reportedly alert and conscious and was taken to a hospital.
ABC News adds that three people were injured with non-life threatening injuries.
Christina Bathea, 29, told ABC News she was in the passageway on her way to work next to the terminal when she heard a bang, saw smoke and ran.
“If I didn’t believe in God, I believe in God today,” she said, adding that she commuted from Yonkers, New York.
Thank God that this terror attack didn’t get to fully transpire.
