An ISIS-linked jihadists attacked an FBI agent with a knife in New York City Wednesday.
NBC New York reported:

The FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested a 21-year-old Staten Island man who allegedly repeatedly tried to stab an FBI agent with a kitchen knife Wednesday as officers attempted to search his home in connection with an ongoing ISIS-related investigation involving a Queens college student arrested over the weekend, according to court documents.

 

Fareed Mumuni was charged Wednesday with attempting to murder an FBI agent, though no serious injuries were reported in the scuffle, conspiring to provide material support to ISIS and trying to assist the terror group in carrying out an attack in the New York area, according to the complaint.

 

After his arrest, Mumuni allegedly told investigators he had pledged his allegiance to ISIS and that he planned to travel overseas to join the group. If he wasn’t able to join ISIS overseas, he allegedly planned to attack law enforcement officers at home, and was coordinating that plan with others.

The attacker, once subdued, reportedly told agents he kept two knives, a pointed kitchen knife in his room and a large knife in his car, to use to attack law enforcement officers.

When his mother allowed the agents in to search the house, the man came down the stairs and lunged at an agent. Body armor the agent was wearing prevented the knife from harming him, according to WNBC-TV:

“Fareed Mumuni was charged Wednesday with attempting to murder an FBI agent, though no serious injuries were reported in the scuffle, conspiring to provide material support to ISIS and trying to assist the terror group in carrying out an attack in the New York area, according to the complaint.

“After his arrest, Mumuni allegedly told investigators he had pledged his allegiance to ISIS and that he planned to travel overseas to join the group. If he wasn’t able to join ISIS overseas, he allegedly planned to attack law enforcement officers at home, and was coordinating that plan with others.

“Mumuni’s alleged conspirators include Munther Omar Saleh, the 20-year-old college student from Queens arrested over the weekend for allegedly scouting possible targets for an ISIS-inspired attack. Court documents say Saleh also charged law enforcement officers with a knife when he saw them conducting surveillance of him and another alleged conspirator Saturday. No one was hurt.”

…”Authorities went to Mumuni’s home Wednesday to execute a search warrant in the case when Mumuni allegedly attacked them. Court papers say the suspect’s mother and sister opened the door to let law enforcement officers in, and when they entered, Mumuni walked down the main staircase.

“Officers ordered him to move to a couch in the living room and Mumuni refused, then allegedly lunged at the agents with a kitchen knife. He repeatedly tried to stab one officer as others attempted to restrain him, court papers say. None of the stabs penetrated the agent’s body armor.

“After Mumuni’s arrest, his mother allowed agents to search his car, where investigators found a bag containing another large kitchen knife, court papers say. After his arrest, he allegedly told FBI agents Wednesday’s attack on the officers was premeditated and that he kept the knife used to attack the agent wrapped in a T-shirt in his bed for just such an occasion. He said he also stowed the knife found in his mother’s car for a potential encounter with law enforcement, the complaint says.

“Court papers say Mumuni also admitted to talking about building a pressure cooker bomb with Saleh.”
