Authorities believe the three bombing incidents this weekend in Seaside Park, New Jersey, New York City, and Elizabeth, New Jersey, are related, as officials released photos of a “person of interest.”
An alert sent shortly before 8 a.m. today says police are seeking a man in connection with the Saturday night bombing in New York City, identified by authorities as 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami.
Rahami is believed to be the man seen in surveillance video at both the scene of the explosion and the scene on West 27th St. where the unexploded device was found, a police source said.
New Jersey State Police also said this morning that they are looking to question Rahami in connection with the Saturday morning explosion in Seaside Park, New Jersey.
Rahami is a U.S. citizen of Afghan descent. He is considered armed and dangerous.
