"There's an old saying in law enforcement".

The Afghan immigrant who authorities believe planted bombs in New Jersey and NY this weekend was captured Monday after a dramatic gun battle with police that sparked when officers found him sleeping in the doorway of a bar.

Federal terrorism charges were filed against Rahami on Tuesday night.

Maria shared with Fox News that the last time she knows of Rahami going back to Afghanistan, where he was born, was nine years ago, adding that he brought back a wife and another child.

The FBI said that it began an assessment of the younger Rahami in 2014 based on comments by his father.

Federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged the Afghan-born man suspected of weekend bombings in NY and New Jersey with 10 counts including use of weapons of mass destruction, portraying him as a jihadist who begged for martyrdom and praised Osama bin Laden.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, the father says he contacted authorities because his son was causing trouble and not because of terrorist motivations.

Two New Jersey police officers wounded in a shootout with the man suspected of setting off bombs in NY and New Jersey have been released from the hospital. Law-enforcement officials said investigators found a bloodstained notebook when he was arrested after a shootout with police in Linden, N.J., on Monday. They said he worked there until September 12, but didn't identify the store. "For all the Federal Bureau of Investigation and intelligence and police are doing - and they're doing so much - it's impossible to be aware of everybody who at some point along the path of their life might be radicalized".

She says along with investigations, authorities must connect with members of various communities to find out who the terrorists are.

David E. Patton said in a letter to a federal judge Tuesday night that Rahami has been held and questioned by federal law enforcement agents since his arrest.

Rahami, who came to the U.S.as a child, studied criminal justice for a time at a community college, and he worked as an unarmed night guard for two months in 2011 at an AP administrative technology office in Cranbury, New Jersey.

AP global security chief Danny Spriggs said he learned this week that Rahami worked there and often engaged colleagues in long political discussions, expressing sympathy for the Taliban and disdain for US military action in Afghanistan. Rahami left that job in 2011 because he wanted to take a trip to Afghanistan, Spriggs said.

Officials say they believe Rahami acted alone. There is laughter. Rahami then appears in the frame of the video, according to the complaint, and picks up the device.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch says the Justice Department intends in the "near future" to brinRahami to NY to face charges in Saturday night's bombing. Nor were Afghan intelligence officials aware of either Rahami or his family, said Mohammad Masoom Stanekzai, director-general of the Afghan National Directorate of Security.

A bomb went off in Seaside Park, New Jersey, on Saturday morning. Thirty-one people were injured, including a driver knocked unconscious by the blast and a woman who had wood shards embedded in her neck.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is asking the public for help in locating two men who allegedly found a piece of luggage on a NY sidewalk that contained an explosive device that may be tied to the suspect in Saturday's bombings in NY and New Jersey. A second pressure cooker bomb left in Manhattan didn't explode and is the subject of the latest public plea.

A video recovered from the cell phone of a relative also showed Rahami igniting an incendiary device two days before the bombings in or near his home in Elizabeth, the indictment alleged. Fingerprints led to Rahami, officials said.
