Montreal resident accused of stabbing police officer at MI airport

23 Juin 2017

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A Canadian man has been charged in the stabbing of a MI airport police officer, and authorities are investigating the attack as a possible terrorist act.

Amor Ftouhi, arrested in connection with the stabbing of a police officer at Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan, is shown in this photo released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Flint, Michigan, June 22, 2017.

"He further exclaimed something similar to, 'You have killed people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and we are all going to die, '" the complaint states.

As asserted in a statement released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, "all law enforcement agencies responded to Flint's #Bishop International Airport after receiving the report of a stabbing of an airport police officer who is presently considered to be in stable condition".

Special Agent in Charge David P. Gelios also told reporters that Amor Ftouhi, a resident of Canada, was in MI as early as June 18.

He legally entered the US through NY on June 16.

According to MLive, the suspect is married and a father of three.

Linsey Carson, a court pretrial services officer, also spoke at Ftouhi's hearing Wednesday.

Fthoui seemed to have acted alone and had no specialized training, officials said.

The rating was upgraded by Atlantic Securities on Wednesday, December 21 to "Overweight". (NYSE:KMI) opened at 18.51 on Thursday. The pipeline company reported $0.17 EPS for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $0.18 by $0.01.

Authorities believe he entered the state of MI on 18 June after they found and searched his vehicle, which was left in the airport auto park. Authorities say Neville fought off his attacker for a minute as other police assisted in subduing the suspect. Law enforcement agencies in both the United States and Canada are working together to find more information on the suspect.

The Montrealer also mentioned USA military operations in Syria and Iraq as his motivation for attacking the cop.

An airport official said Wednesday afternoon that Neville is "doing fine" and "resting comfortably" at a hospital.

As Neville is said to be in good condition, Owen says he was able to visit his friend.

He also expressed "hatred for the United States" in custody, Mr Gelios said. Mayor Karen Weaver said in a release the situation was "under control" but that officials sought to take "extra precautions".

Police officers gather at a terminal at Bishop International Airport, June 21, 2017, in Flint, Mich. "Good person, and then you hate to see something happen to a good person", Owen said.

"I think it is safe to say that there will be additional charges forthcoming against Mr. Ftouhi", he said, adding if there is evidence the attack was an act of terrorism, terrorism- related charges could be authorized.

" I want to assure all our law enforcement across the nation, any attack on someone who serves and protects our citizens will be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law". Michigan Governor Rick Snyder tweeted that despite the attack, officials need to, quote, "balance increased security with understanding and tolerance".
