A couple was arrested this week in Newark, New Jersey, on criminal charges regarding their alleged attempt to provide material support to ISIS, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) said Thursday.
“According to court documents, James Bradley, 20, of the Bronx, New York, and Arwa Muthana, 29, of Hoover, Alabama, are ISIS supporters who attempted to travel to the Middle East to join and fight for ISIS,” the agency stated.
Bradley has allegedly voiced support for the terrorist group and his desire to be part of it overseas or commit a terrorist attack in America.
“Bradley and his wife, who has also expressed her support for ISIS, were arrested while attempting to travel together by cargo ship to the Middle East to join and fight for ISIS. Bradley and Muthana were presented before U.S. Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman in Manhattan federal court today,” the press release said.
