No bond for suspect in stabbing of Flint airport officer

No bond for suspect in stabbing of Flint airport officer

The FBI, who has spoken to more than 20 witnesses thus far in their investigation, believe Ftouhi acted alone.

Morgan said that regardless of whether Ftouhi - a Canadian and Tunisian dual citizen - was released on bond by the federal court, immigration offices meant to detain him so he would not be able to leave the country. Ftouhi remains in federal custody on a charge of violence at an global airport and is due to return to court in Flint this week.

Amor Ftouhi, 49, is unlikely to be granted bond Wednesday because the charge is serious and he lives outside the U.S. She told a federal judge Wednesday that the 49-year-old defendant from Montreal would be held by US immigration authorities even if granted bond in the criminal case. His lawyer, Joan Morgan, hasn't commented on the case.

On Wednesday morning, a police officer was stabbed in the neck at Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan. His face was partially covered by a mask he was wearing for "unspecified medical reasons", federal court spokesman David Ashenfelter said.
