FBI Hunts For ‘Armed and Dangerous’ Man, 28, Over NYC Bombing

The FBI has released the picture and name of a man wanted for questioning in the New York City bombing on Saturday.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of 28-year-old Khan Rahami are being asked to contact police immediately.

He should not be approached, as he is considered armed and dangerous.

Twenty-nine people were injured Saturday night when a pressure-cooker bomb exploded inside a dumpster in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

Surveillance video apparently shows the same man dropping off a bomb on that street, as well as another street where an unexploded IED was later found.

The bombing in Chelsea was just one of three bombings that have happened over the weekend.

Earlier Saturday, a pipe bomb detonated at a military charity run in Seaside Park, New Jersey.

And Sunday night, pipe bombs were found inside duffel bags hidden in trash cans at the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station.

Neither of the New Jersey bombs caused any injuries, but one of the devices in Elizabeth did startle police when a bomb robot cut a wrong wire, causing the device to explode early Monday morning.

Law enforcement are currently searching through an apartment in Elizabeth in connection to the New Jersey incidents.

The apartment is above a First American Fried Chicken restaurant where law enforcement say a man and his sons live.

On Sunday, a car full of five armed men was pulled over near the Verrazano-Narrows bridge, headed for JFK airport.

Those five men are believed to be from the same family and were taken to the FBI building in Manhattan for questioning.
