TRENTON, N.J. — The man accused of planting several bombs in Manhattan and New Jersey has been moved to a New Jersey state prison.

A New Jersey Department of Corrections spokesperson said Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, was moved to New Jersey State Prison in Trenton Tuesday morning.

Rahami was arrested in September in connection with explosions in Seaside Park, N.J., and Chelsea in New York City.  An explosive was also left at a train station in Elizabeth, N.J.

Police arrested Rahami following a shootout in Linden, N.J. where he remained hospitalized until Tuesday.

Rahami was charged with the attempted murder of police officers as well as use of weapons of mass destruction; bombing; destruction of property and use of a destructive device.

He pleaded not guilty on Oct. 13 in the shooting of two Linden police officers.

Rahami's father said he had informed the FBI in 2014 that his son had become radicalized. Mohammad Rahami said his son's personality changed after visiting Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2013.

The FBI had investigated Rahami after he was accused of stabbing his brother in 2014. The bureau said they found nothing tying him to terrorism.
