New York police have named 27-year-old Brooklyn resident Akayed Ullah as the suspect who was wearing a homemade explosive device that detonated at the Port Authority bus terminal near Times Square. Ullah is of Bangladeshi descent. New York Mayor Bill Di Blasio has describe the event as an attempted terrorist attack.

NYPD and FDNY and other authorities responded about 7:30 a.m. Monday December 11, 2017 to and explosion and possible bomb at the Port Authority bus terminal, on 41st Street about three blocks southwest of Times Square in Manhattan, New York.

Early reports from police sources say it is possible a pipe bomb was detonated in passageway below ground at Port Authority in NYC. Police sources report one person is in custody. Initially it is believed that few injuries occurred, and the situation is contained.

UPDATE: Akayed Ullah, age 27, an immigrant from Bangladesh who lived in Brooklyn, is in police custody. He is accused of setting off a pipe bomb strapped to his body during the morning rush hour on Monday. The explosion, which may have detonated prematurely, was located underground inside one of Manhattan’s busiest commuter corridors.

According to NYPD, the explosion, captured on video, occurred at 7:20 a.m. ET in a pedestrian walkway connecting the Eighth Avenue, Seventh Avenue and Broadway bus lines.

Ullah had attached the pipe bomb to himself with a “combination of Velcro and zip ties,” according to James P. O’Neill, the commissioner of the New York Police Department. Analysts suspect the secure fastening that was applied may have indicated Ullah entered the subway intending to carry out a suicide bombing.


During a police press conference a picture of Mr. Ullah was displayed that appeared to have been taken inside the subway walkway after the blast. On the subway floor, Ullah was curled in a fetal position with torn clothing, and his exposed abdominal skin and clothing blackened.

The bomber suffered serious lacerations and burns to his abdomen and hands.
