New York Subway: NYPD Look to Question Man in Rice Cooker Scare
Three abandoned devices that looked like pressure cookers prompted an evacuation of a major lower Manhattan subway station and closed off an intersection in another part of town Friday, August 16 morning before police determined the objects were not explosives.
Police were looking to talk to a man seen on surveillance video taking two of the devices, which they identified as rice cookers, out of a shopping cart and placing them in the subway station.
But police emphasized that so far, it wasn’t clear whether he was trying to frighten people or merely throwing the objects away. (AP)
