Police issued a push notification to IPhone users in the New York area this morning identifying a suspect in the New York explosions.

Rahami is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan with an address in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Authorities said the blasts were looking more like an act of terrorism with a foreign connection but they wouldn’t say how they zeroed in on Rahami.
The blast in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood on Saturday injured 29 people and an unexploded pressure cooker bomb was found blocks away.
A pipe bomb also exploded in a New Jersey shore town before a charity race but no one was injured there.
On Sunday, five more explosive devices were discovered in a trash can at an Elizabeth train station.
Monday afternoon, charges were laid against Rahami including 5 counts of attempted murder, and 2 weapons charges.
