Suspected New York Bike Path Attacker Charged

Suspected New York Bike Path Attacker Charged

Terrorist suspect Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was indicted on Tuesday on 22 counts relating to terrorism and murder charges in a United States federal court in Manhattan.

The Patterson, NJ, resident was arrested on Halloween after he allegedly killed eight people and inured a dozen by speeding over a popular bike-only path in lower Manhattan in a rental truck.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Saipov was charged with killing "eight innocent people.in a calculated act of terrorism in the heart of one of our great cities".

An NYPD officer shot and restrained Saipov shortly thereafter.

A grand jury returned a 22-count indictment against Sayfullo Saipov after prosecutors initially announced only two: provision of material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, and violence and destruction of motor vehicles.

Each of the murder charges, along with the motor vehicle charge, carries a possible death sentence, though the Justice Department must still take other steps to pursue that penalty.

Sayfullo Saipov, the man accused of driving a truck through a bike lane in downtown New York City on Halloween, was indicted in federal court Tuesday.

Saipov admitted to authorities that he wrote a note found near the crashed truck, which was written in Arabic and said the Islamic State would endure forever, according to the complaint.

Saipov is accused of killing eight people and injuring 12 in lower Manhattan on October 31.

In the Saipov case, such deliberations will be complicated because within days of the attack, President Donald Trump publicly called for Saipov to get the death penalty, tweeting: "NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room". Investigators say he confessed to acting in the name of IS and told them he "felt good" about the killings.

Attorneys from the Federal Defenders of NY are representing Saipov.
