Montreal man accused in Flint airport attack denied bond

Montreal man accused in Flint airport attack denied bond

His face was partially covered by a mask he was wearing for "unspecified medical reasons", federal court spokesman David Ashenfelter said.

The hearing was to determine if a judge would grant bail for the man accused to stabbing a police officer at Flint's Bishop International Airport.

Dawkins ordered that Ftouhi remain jailed, and scheduled a preliminary exam for Wednesday, July 5, at 1:30 p.m.

Ftouhi's attorney told the judge her client understood, given the seriousness of the charge, that he's not a U-S citizen and he has no ties to MI, that it was unlikely he would get bond. Morgan said that she had told Ftouhi that even if the court granted him a bond, because his immigration status is on a hold he would not be released.




Ftouhi legally entered the United States at Lake Champlain, New York, on June 16 before making his way to Flint, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said last week.

Dawkins Davis set the next court appearance for 1:30 p.m. on July 5, saying that it would be a pending trial unless a Grand Jury met before then and made a decision to indict Ftouhi.

Police say Ftouhi yelled "Allahu akbar", the Arabic phrase for "God is great". Neville was released from a hospital Monday.

After stabbing Neville, the complaint said Ftouhi further exclaimed something similar to "You have killed people in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die". The officer is recovering from a 12-inch gash to his neck.
