Father of NY-area bombings suspect showed concern of son being terrorist in 2014
NEW YORK (AP) — A law enforcement official says the FBI looked into Ahmad Khan Rahami two years ago after his father called with concerns about his son being a terrorist.
The father later took back the claim and said he just meant his son was hanging with the wrong crowd.
Still, the official says the FBI checked its databases and found nothing connecting the man now suspected in bombings in the New York area to any terror groups.
The father contacted the FBI after Rahami was charged with stabbing his brother.
