Two law enforcement officials identified the suspect as 32-year-old Akram Joudeh of Queens, who has 15 prior arrests, including one on August 27 after he was found carrying knives near a synagogue.
MIDTOWN, Manhattan — A man wielding a meat cleaver was shot by police after attacking two officers, injuring them in busy Herald Square Thursday during rush hour, police sources said.
