MANHATTAN: Authorities Name 27 Year-Old Suspect In Port Authority “Terror-Related” Pipe Bomb Attack

Heavy.com reports:

Ullah Akayed has been arrested following reports of a possible pipe bomb detonated in New York City. Police say that it appears as though Akayed set off some kind of explosive device around 6:30 a.m. on Monday morning in an underground Subway station not too far from bustling Times Square. Police took 27-year-old Akayed into custody shortly after the explosion was reported. According to Mail Online, Akayed was “wearing a device with wires” on his person.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC that preliminary information suggested that Akayed may have been from Bangladesh and has been living in the United States for about seven years. Akayed lived in the East Flatbush area of Brooklyn. Police have arrived at his home and are looking for more information about him.

“Investigators briefly spoke to the suspect he told them he made the explosive device at the electrical company where he works,” read a tweet from the New York City Alerts Twitter page. The explosion occurred near the Port Authority bus terminal in Midtown Manhattan. The passageways that connect the subway system underground tend to be very busy.

    Cue Trump screeching about his travel ban in 3, 2, 1. I would guess it’s a direct result of his decision about Jerusalem but I was really, really hoping the suspect wouldn’t have a Middle Eastern name because it will just feed the prejudice.

      At this point the only ban related to the president that would make America safer is if the president was banned form opening his mouth… or at the very least Twitter…

      • Joe in PA

        Let’s just go with “ban from the Oval office”. 🙁

  • Great. Playing right into Trump’s tiny hands.

    • Taylor Bixler

      Trump’s hands. Bannon’s hands. Spencer’s hands. Gorka’s hands. Stephen Miller’s hands. Pamela Gellar’s hands.

  • Tawreos

    I am sure the Trump and the rest of the idiots will be screaming about his ban which doesn’t cover Bangladesh and wasn’t in place 7 years ago. A more effective cure for terrorism would be less rhetoric and more diplomacy to ease the tensions that cause terrorism.

    • Taylor Bixler

      Pffft. Facts….

    • FAEN

      Like his idiots could point out Bangladesh on a map.

      Cheeto’s version of diplomacy is to destroy everything THEN throw his tiny hands up and accuse everyone else of doing so when it all falls to pieces.

      Was chatting with someone who was looking to join the State Dept and he basically said there was no way he was going to attempt it while Cheeto is in the WH. And this is the majority opinion. We are losing seasoned Diplomats and there doesn’t seem to be anyone wanting to fill the spots.

        Unlikely. They don’t have any oil.

        There map is just the USA surrounded by water

      • Tawreos

        Which is exactly what they want. Less diplomacy, more bombs.

        • Joe in PA

          Fuck yeah! Murca!

          I’m still waiting for the Second Rights Amendment nuts to start arguing for their right to bear nuclear arms.

          • Tawreos

            Can’t really take and ICBM with you to the grocery store to improve the size of the penis, so they won’t care about that. =)

            I know I measure the strength of my penis in megatons ;-).

        The original plan was for hubby and I to move back to Hawaii either this year or the coming year, but after the political shit show that it has become, we decided that we’re better off in Chile since nobody ever seems to give South America anything but a passing thought.

        To Trump and his followers, everything south of Texas is Mexico.

        • FAEN

          Smart move V.

    • dogdadny

      But 7 yrs ago does let him blame Obama – not that he doesn’t blame him for everything he doesn’t blame on Hillary.

    • Greg B.

      Not just the ban, but the wall on the Mexican border which, somehow, this attack proves necessary.

    • Regan DuCasse

      ??? Are you f**king serious? Where have you been the last 45 years?

  • Ninja0980

    We can say that these folks are playing into Trump hand’s but the fact is ISIS and their ilk want a war just as much as Trump does.
    Shame we can’t just drop them all in a cage and be done with it.

  • William

    The name makes me think of the Caucuses region of Russia, somewhere around Dagestan.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    ” he made the explosive device at the electrical company where he works ”

    Someone is getting a visit soon……

    • Tawreos

      Unless they use coal, then they will be getting government assistance.

  • DesertSun59

    Moore only needs to be interviewed, briefly, by someone at Fox about this issue and he’s as good as over the top now.

    • Tawreos

      He doesn’t even need to be interviewed. All he needs is statement stating “Muslims is bad, mmmkay” and he is the next senator from Alabama

      • Chucktech

        He doesn’t even need to open his god-addled pie hole and he’s the next senator from Alabama.

  • Boreal

    Yay, a mooslim sounding name, perfect distraction from treason for Hair Furor.

    • GayOldLady

      A mooselamb sounding name and a pipe bomb that didn’t actually work on anyone except himself and we get mooselamb ban 2.0 on steroids. Never mind American’s who shoot & kill hundreds of innocent civilians from Hotel suite windows or American’s who shoot & kill people going to church, that’s ok nothing we can do cause the 2nd Amendment, but mooselamb’s nothing to do but Mooselamb BAN 2.0

  • Kevin Perez

    Bangladesh? If Prince Fixodent bans Muslims from Bangladesh then Ivanka is going to have to shut down her textile business.

    • Joe in PA

      Ah, that’s President Poligrip to you buster. 🙂

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      The ban won’t apply to shoddy merchandise or drumpf business associates; it only affects real people.

  • greenmanTN
    • Taylor Bixler

      Amazingly, still no tweet from herr tiny hands.

  • Joe in PA

    And Moore just won the election in Alabama.

    • Tawreos

      That was only in doubt for about 5 minutes until the first person said that if they didn’t vote for the child molester, a democrat might win.

    Hmmm. Trump still hasn’t tweeted about this. It seems all his tweeting focus for the past week has been on trying to discredit the FBI and the media. I wonder what he’s expecting.

    • kareemachan

      Well, he HAS had a hissy fit about CNN….

  • JoeMyGod
    • Joe in PA

      Wow.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    OT – Today is the 135th birthday of Olivia Newton John’s grandfather. Oh yeah… he did something once in some laboratory, too.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Sigh….

    Honestly, how else to react? We’ll now be treated to barrage of “what ifs and why’s” and Cheetolini will, in due course, spout off his usual blather, Fox will wag the dog and Breitbart will salivate while complaining “not enough east coast liberal elites” were hurt. Worse still, this will play into Trump’s tiny, infantile hands…more’s the pity.

    • Daveed_WOW

      We’re coming up on the anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre and there’s a special election over Culture War issues hours away. Coincidence? Remember that Mideast Terrorism is a result of Cold War counterintelligence by the United States of America.

      • BrandySpears

        Remember, Bangladesh is a South Asian country – not in the Middle East.
        The CIA is responsible for a Muslim from Brooklyn trying to blow himself and others up? Take your meds.

  • Snownova

    Oh look, another terrorist from a country NOT on Trumps travel ban list.

  • Paula

    Gotta’ love stupid criminals. They are very entertaining when they blow themselves up and don’t hurt anyone else seriously.

  • Mark_in_MN

    First, I’m glad this wasn’t more serious than it was.

    Looking at portions of that ABC News video, however, I have to boggle at the number of police officers just standing around. Surely there are better and more useful things they could be actually doing, and better ways to employ police resources. It always seems this way whenever there is an incident, major or not so much, regardless of where it is or how big the place. How wasteful.

    • William

      They all want their names on the report. It’s the same when there is a major car crash.

  • kaydenpat

    Bastard.
