ISIS has repeatedly called on followers in the U.S. to attack law enforcement or military installations. The FBI has ramped up investigations into terror suspects ahead of Independence Day this year. Amid the surge, a 21-year-old New York City man, Fareed Mumuni, has been charged with attempting to murder a federal officer by stabbing him with a kitchen knife. Mumuni was being investigated on suspicion of plotting an attack on behalf of the Islamic State on July 4. When an FBI squad arrived at his home in Staten Island, he repeatedly stabbed one of the agents - who was wearing padded body armor - with a kitchen knife, according to a complaint filed in federal court in Brooklyn. The officer escaped with minor injuries. Anthony Ricco, Mumuni's court-appointed defense lawyer, told reporters Mumuni was a 'quiet, soft-spoken, very bright young man' and that his relatives, some of whom attended the hearing, were surprised by the charges. Mumuni, a U.S. citizen, grew up in Staten Island and studied social work at the College of Staten Island, Ricco said.
