U.S. charges suspect in New York 'jihad-enlivened' cleaver assault.
Trevor Thomas Bickford was propelled by a known defender of extremist Islamic philosophy before he went after New York City cops.
Bickford faces four counts of endeavored murder of government representatives, charges that could land him in jail for a long time, bureaucratic examiners said Tuesday.
He as of now faces two counts of endeavored murder and two counts of endeavored attack from the Manhattan lead prosecutor.
In interviews with specialists, Bickford said he searched out a cop who had been coordinating traffic and started recounting stanzas from the Quran to "publicity himself up."
In the following pandemonium, as he attacked different officials, Bickford attempted to "effectively get rid of" a gun from one official, as per court reports.
Bickford got his hand on the weapon yet neglected to remove it from the holster.
Bickford was then shot in the shoulder, which finished the assault.
Bickford said he had acted alone, denying connections to fear monger gatherings.
Bickford later composed, in a journal passage that was found by policing, that he had "no caring words" for his sibling, as he had "joined the positions of my foe."
Bickford's legitimate agents couldn't be promptly arrived at early Wednesday.
