Terror Suspect from Rochester in Custody

A Yemen-born man who was resided in Rochester was indited on Tuesday.  He is accused of recruiting for the terrorist organization, the Islamic State, also known as ISIS.

While the terror charges the suspect faces are serious, he is also charged with additional substantive crimes.
