(New York, NY) -- There's more information now about the New Jersey man being sought by the FBI in a bombing Saturday in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood.  The FBI says 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami was born in Afghanistan but is a U.S. citizen living in Elizabeth.  Neighbors say he works at First American Fried Chicken on Elmora Avenue and lives upstairs with his father.

Authorities raided the place earlier today after five pipe bombs were found at the Elizabeth train station and one exploded while a robot was trying to cut the wires.  They're warning that Rahami is armed and dangerous and are urging people to call 911 if they see him.

The wanted poster they've released shows a bearded man with brown hair, brown eyes, about five-six, two-hundred pounds.
