The FBI wants help tracking down two people who allegedly picked up a suitcase containing a bomb that didn’t explode in Manhattan last weekend.
A poster released by the FBI shows surveillance camera footage of the two people walking near the site of the Chelsea bombing.
Federal prosecutors charged Ahmad Khan Rahami on Tuesday with planting an improvised explosive device that injured 31 people in New York West 23rd Street.
The two individuals allegedly found a piece of luggage on the sidewalk, removed the explosive device and took the suitcase but left the explosive behind, according to the FBI’s release.
This device was the second pressure cooker-style bomb that was found undetonated. It was discovered by a neighbor on West 27th Street.
The FBI says it is interested in speaking to the two men but did not list them as suspects.
