West Haven Man Arrested For Trying To Join ISIS: Feds

Authorities say the man was arrested as he was attempting to begin his travel to the Middle East to join and fight for ISIS.

A West Haven man has been arrested after authorities say he was attempting to travel to the Middle East to join and fight for ISIS.

Amhad Khalil Elshazly, 22, of West Haven, has been charged by a federal complaint with attempting to provide material to support ISIS, U.S. States Attorney for Connecticut John H. Durham announced.

Elshazly was arrested Sunday in Stonington where he was expecting to board a ship to travel to Turkey and transit to Syria to be with ISIS, according to authorities. He appeared in federal court in New Haven on Monday and was ordered detained.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office and our law enforcement partners are committed to targeting and stopping those who wish to cause mayhem, both in the U.S. and abroad, before they are successful,” Durham said in a statement.
