A manhunt is underway in New York City after police identified a suspect in connection with the Chelsea bombing that injured 29 people.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, is being sought in connection to the Saturday evening explosion in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, officials in New York, New Jersey, and with the FBI said early Monday. Cellphone alerts were sent out over the tri-state area around 8 a.m. with information about Rahami.

Video places Rahami at the scene of both the bomb that exploded in Chelsea, as well as the one that failed to explode and was taken away by police.

According to the Associated Press, Rahami sought in connection to a Seaside Park, NJ bombing, and explosives found near the Elizabeth, NJ train station, where Rahami lives.

The FBI bulletin (PDF) on Rahami states he “is a 28-year-old United States citizen of Afghan descent born on January 23, 1988, in Afghanistan. His last known address was in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He is about 5’ 6” tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds. Rahami has brown hair, brown eyes, and brown facial hair.”

Police are also looking into two other men in connection with the bombing, but have yet to release information about them. The Chelsea bombing left 29 people injured and thankfully no one lost their life.
