On Wednesday, federal prosecutors in NY filed terrorism charges against an Uzbek immigrant in the deadly truck attack on a NY bike path.

The FBI released the name as Mukhammadzoir Kadirov of Uzbekistan, born November 5, 1984.

"We have found him and we will leave it at that", said Bill Sweeney, the assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Kadirov also quoted a passage from the Quran in his statement.

At a midday news conference, police officials said Saipov was never the subject of an NYPD investigation but said he might have had contact with individuals who were.

Saipov allegedly said he began planning the attack approximately two months ago.

It's unclear how recently or how long Saipov lived in Tampa, but he has a Florida driver's license and the apartment he stayed in is about five miles away from Kadirov's former home.

The FBI is looking for a second suspect who may have been involved in the terror attack in lower Manhattan on Tuesday.
