Father of New York bombing suspect reported son to police in 2014

September 20, 2016 18:54

The father of the Afghanistan-born suspect in the New York-area bombing attacks over the weekend told police two years ago that his son was a terrorist, a move that then prompted a federal review, the New York Times reported on Tuesday.

The Times, citing two senior law enforcement officials, reported that the father had told police in 2014 when his son, Ahmad Khan Rahami, was arrested after a domestic dispute and accused of stabbing his brother that he was a terrorist. The newspaper also reported that another official said when Rahami was captured on Monday he was carrying a notebook containing writings sympathetic to jihadist causes.
