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.

The father contacted the FBI after Rahami was charged with stabbing his brother.
