In a press release from the FBI, Rahami, who is a U.S. citizen, should “be considered armed and dangerous.”
A federal source confirms to the public that Rahami is considered separate from the five people who were detained by the FBI on Sunday night. Those individuals were taken in for questioning during a traffic stop at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the bridge that connects the boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island.
The federal official also confirms that the same model flip-style cell phone was used as a detonator for the two bombs in Chelsea (a second device was discovered on Saturday night and disarmed by authorities) and the bomb that went off ahead of a charity run in Seaside Park, New Jersey, which is about 85 miles south of Manhattan.

Both bombings occurred within hours of each other on Saturday.
No one was injured in the Seaside Park bombing. Although twenty-nine people were injured in the Chelsea bombing but none of the injuries are considered to be life-threatening. (VOA)
