Dzenan Camovic, a Bosnian national and unauthorized alien allegedly attacked the officers with a knife from behind while they were protecting Brooklyn stores from being looted amid widespread destruction throughout the city. The indictment says Camovic stabbed one officer in the neck and stole his 9mm service weapon, firing at two other officers. The fire was returned by other officers and Camovic was seriously wounded. All three wounded officers were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William Sweeney condemned Camovic’s actions and said such assaults had “no place in our community.”
“Several days into protests that erupted in New York City and throughout the country, we allege Dzenan Camovic, motivated by ISIS-inspired ideology, ambushed three NYPD officers on the streets of Brooklyn and caused serious injury to those officers.
