Cell phone leads authorities to suspect in New York, New Jersey bombings
...Rahami was born in Afghanistan. He appears pudgy in the surveillance video that accompanies the story. The story does not indicate any accomplices.
Authorities were able to identify Rahami with the help of a cell phone left behind with an unexploded pressure cooker found on West 27th Street — blocks away from the explosion on West 23rd Street, a source told ABC News.
He is believed to be the man seen in surveillance video taken Saturday night in Chelsea and at the scene on West 27th Street, a law enforcement source told ABC News.
Rahami is about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs about 200 pounds. He has brown hair, brown eyes and brown facial hair.
The alarming possibility of a terror cell in New York and New Jersey emerged as the FBI launched a raid in Elizabeth, New Jersey, early Monday — hours after authorities discovered five suspicious devices, one of which blew up near a train station.
The feds, including members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, raided an apartment where Rahami lives above a fried chicken restaurant on Elmora Avenue.
