Husband and Wife Arrested While Attempting to Stowaway on Cargo Ship After Conspiring With ISIS

A Bronx man and his wife, from Alabama, are being held without bail for allegedly trying to join ISIS at the very end of March and plotting out an attack on the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, federal prosecutors reported.

James Bradley, 20, of the Bronx and Arwa Muthana, 29, of Hoover, AL were both arrested while attempting to stowaway on a Middle East-bound cargo ship in Port Newark, NJ, which was actually a sting operation by police on March 31, according to authorities.

“James Bradley allegedly pledged devout allegiance to ISIS, expressing his desire to ‘fight among the rank[s] for the Islamic State,” said U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss for the Southern District of New York.

“Suspecting he may be unable to travel, Bradley instead allegedly discussed conducting terrorist attacks along with his wife, Arwa Muthana, also an ISIS supporter, against the US Military Academy at West Point or another area university where Bradley knew military recruits to be training,” Strauss added.
