  • Stabbed Mich. Airport Officer Leaves Hospital

This Wednesday morning, stabbing suspect Amor Ftouhi was back in a federal courtroom.

Ftouhi, a native of Tunisia, is charged with committing violence at the Flint airport.

Authorities say Ftouhi stabbed Neville with a large knife after yelling "Allahu akbar", the Arabic phrase for "God is great".

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.

Suspected of stabbing Flint Bishop Airport Police Lt. Jeff Neville in the neck with a large, serrated "Amazon Jungle Survival" knife on Wednesday, June 21, Ftouhi, 49, is detained on a federal criminal complaint of violence at an worldwide airport.

Ftouhi's next court appearance will be next week. The FBI said it was investigating the attack as a possible act of terrorism.

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".

Following last week's hearing, the FBI held a brief press conference on their investigation and shared that Ftouhi, unsuccessfully, attempted to purchase a gun in the United State.

Lt. Jeff Neville, whom doctors said was within a few millimeters away from losing his life, was discharged on Monday from Hurley Medical Center, according to The Detroit News.
