An undocumented immigrant assaulted and nearly stabbed a Border Patrol agent near Tucson on Tuesday night.

The attack happened as the Border and Air and Marine Operations were responding to a report of roughly 10 migrants walking in the desert, the Arizona Republic reports.

Using a helicopter as a guide, agents located the group.

When an agent tried to stop a fleeing migrant, he was nearly stabbed when the man pulled out a knife. The agent’s handheld radio was stabbed, potentially saving him.

The co-pilot of a helicopter helped subdue and arrest the man.

The agent wasn’t seriously injured.

Proecutors: Terrorism Suspect in Boston Planned to Kill Police with Knives

Not long before a 26-year-old terrorism suspect was fatally shot Tuesday during a scuffle with FBI agents and Boston police, he told a friend that he wanted to randomly kill police officers and bought three combat knives on Amazon.com, the Washington Post reports.

A criminal complaint filed against Usaamah Abdullah Rahim alleges he even wanted to behead an unknown person in a different state.

The complaint asserts that Rahim and two other men plotted the killing of police officers while they were visiting Rhode Island.

One of the suspects has been questioned but not identified. The other, David Wright, of Everest, Mass., was charged Tuesday with conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Pakistani Court Dismisses Criminal Case Against FBI Agent Who Tried to Board Flight with Bullets, Knife

An FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan for trying to board a flight with bullets and a knife in his luggage will not be charged after all, Reuters reports.

A Pakistani court dismissed the case Monday in a move likely intended to keep from souring U.S.-Pakistani ties.

Joel Cox, an FBI agent for the Miami Field Office, was arrested May 4 after trying to board a civilian flight with the knife and bullets. He was jailed for three days before being released on $10,000 bond.

“Since he was not carrying a weapon, only bullets were found from his luggage, the investigation report recommended the cancellation of the case,” Inspector Khalid Mehmood told Reuters.

Police are expected to file formal charges soon against the FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan after authorities said he tried to carry ammunition and a knife onto a plane in Karachi.

The Associated Press reports that a judge on Saturday urged police to file the charges by May 19, the Associated Press reports.

FBI Agent Joel Cox of the Miami Field Office is expected to be back in court on that date. He is free of jail on a $9,800 bail.

Pakistani officials have said there appeared to be no criminal intent in trying to bring the ammunition and knife.

U.S. officials said Cox forgot to remove the weapons from his carry-on luggage.

FBI Agent Arrested in Pakistan for Trying to Board Flight with Ammunition, Knife Likely to Be Released on Bail

An FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan after authorities said he tried to carry ammunition and a knife onto a plane in Karachi may be released from jail today on $10,000 bail, the Washington Post reports this morning.

The agent has been identified as Joel Cox, who works in the Miami Field Office.

News of his possible release comes a day after Pakistani officials said he would be jailed until at least Saturday while awaiting anti-terrorism charges.

The tone in Pakistan has changed.

“The government can challenge the bail but since the offense is not serious enough they might not challenge it,” a police officer said.
Instead of facing anti-terrorism charges, as first reported, Cox faces charges of carrying unauthorized ammunition on a civilian flight.
American officials confirmed that Cox was arrested after security found a knife and 15 9mm bullets in his luggage.

This wasn’t your ordinary enchilada.

In addition to the ordinary ingredients of this Mexican staple, a homemade enchilada contained an 8.5-inch kitchen knife.

The New York Daily News reports that TSA agents discovered the alarming blade covered in a deep red sauce in a passenger’s carry-on luggage.

“The woman said she had made the enchilada over the weekend and she really didn’t know how the knife got into the bag,” TSA spokeswoman Nico Melendez said.

The passenger was questioned and then allowed to continue traveling.
