 – The Washington Times – Updated: 5:41 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The suspect in the New York terrorism attack has been identified as Sayfullo Saipov, according to multiple news outlets.

ABC News first reported that Saipov is a 29-year-old male from Tampa, Fla. CBS News later reported the same name and details, and added the middle name “Habibullaevic,” a name that suggests a Balkan Muslim.

New York officials did not name the suspect at an afternoon press conference but did say he was 29 and not from New York. Eyewitnesses told police the attacker yelled “allahu akbar” as he exited the truck.
