A New York man has been arrested after he reportedly attempted to aid ISIS and encouraged “lone wolf” attacks in the U.S., Fox News reports.
Zachary Clark, 40, was arrested Wednesday in Brooklyn, the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Clark is accused of pledging allegiance to then-ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and again to its new leader, Abu Ibrahim al-Sashemi al-Qurayshi. He also reportedly encouraged attacks on U.S. soil in online chat rooms.
The 40-year-old has been charged with providing material support to ISIS and distributing information related to explosives and weapons of mass destruction. He faces a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison.
