FBI agents in New York arrest man who allegedly tried to attack agents

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in New York on Wednesday arrested a man in Staten Island as part of a larger terrorism-related investigation, an FBI spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman, Kelly Langmesser, declined to comment on media reports that the man had become violent but said no serious injuries were reported in the incident.

The search came a day after U.S. officials accused a New York college student of plotting to set off a pressure-cooker bomb in support of the Islamic State militant group.
