Agents from the FBI have arrested an individual accused of planning a terrorist attack on the Fourth of July in downtown Cleveland.

 

According to FBI agent Stephen Anthony, Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, also known as Abdur Raheem Rahfeeq, was arrested Sunday morning after meeting with an undercover official.

 

Investigators started monitoring Pitts in 2017 when he resided in southern Ohio. He posted several disturbing posts on social media promoting violence and encouraging acts of terrorism supporting Al-Qaeda.
