The New York Police department and  the FBI have named a suspect in Saturday's bombing.

The details: The suspect is Ahmad Khan Rahami. He is 28.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he could be "armed and dangerous." He is also suspected to be involved with the bombs recently placed in New Jersey, NBC News reports.

Rahami is wanted in connection with a bombing that injured 29 people in Saturday. All have been released from the hospital. 

Here's another look at Rahami.

Resident of Elizabeth, N.J.Rahami is a current or former resident of Elizabeth, N.J., where five bombs were found near a train station Sunday night, WABC reports.

Five people were detained at a traffic stop Sunday night, which may be relatives of Rahami. 

Law enforcement officials said the bomb in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan contained a residue of Tannerite, an explosive used for target practice that can be bought in sporting goods stores. 

Rahami's family ran a restaurant in Elizabeth that was deemed a city nuisance, The New York Times reports.

First American Fried Chicken drew loud crowds at late hours, and some customers would urinate in neighbors' yards. So the city council voted to shut the restaurant down at 10 p.m. Rahani's father sued the city, alleging the shutdown was due to discrimination. 

Authorities sent push notifications to New Yorkers' phones.

This would be De Blasio's first implication of foreign terrorists' involvement.

We'll update this as soon as we know more.
