NYC subway attack: Bangladeshi bomber arrested after blast; Chicago panics

Video shows Port Authority explosion

NY police who responded to an explosion in Midtown Manhattan on Monday morning say that they have a male suspect in custody - and that he's the only person who was injured in the incident.

The 29-year-old from Yonkers, who was unhurt in the blast but shaken, decided not to go to work as a security guard and instead will spend time with friends in Harlem to calm her nerves.

The bus terminal, which serves as a hub for several subway lines and bus services operated by companies such as Greyhound, was evacuated following the 7:20 a.m. explosion in a passageway connecting Times Square to Eighth Avenue, officials said.

"Our first responders were there quickly and the only injuries we know of right now are minor", said New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio.

Ullah was taken to NYC Health and Hospitals/Bellevue with burns to his abdomen and hands, the FDNY said.

The police said that no other injuries had been reported and advised people to avoid the area.

After the bombing, the MTA subway agency ordered trains to skip the 42nd Street-Port Authority station as the police continued their investigation.

"Thanks to the quick response of these courageous Port Authority Police officers, the suspect was apprehended, there were no serious injuries and the PABT was secured without further incident", O'Toole said, according to WABC.

The blast - which also injured the attacker - caused widespread chaos as people fled the scene and forced the temporary closure of the bus terminal.

This undated photo provided by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission shows Akayed Ullah, the suspect in the explosion near New York's Times Square on Monday.

Asked whether New Yorkers should feel safe, Waters said the NYPD was "well experienced in protecting New York City each and every day". "We could hear people yelling, 'Get out!" He added: "I was going through the turnstile". Officers were running around.

Ullah had strapped the crudely fashioned device to his body with a combination of Velcro and zip ties, police said. "I was freaking out", he said. "It was fairly orderly".

After the explosion at the bus terminal in Manhattan in NY on Monday, Akayed was arrested and admitted to hospital.

"Info is preliminary", the New York Police Department posted.
