The alleged Islamic extremist accused of stabbing two NYPD officers with a machete near Times Square as revealers prepared to ring in the New Year is 19-year-old Trevor Bickford, a 19-year-old from Maine who has been described by his mother as an “old soul.”

A smiling Bickford is depicted in many of his mother’s social media posts, including one in which she visits him in Seattle, where he moved from Wells, Maine, just two months before the New Year’s Eve bombing.

Bickford, armed with a machete, allegedly stabbed two officers on 8th Avenue, near Times Square, Commissioner Keechant Sewell said.

Another officer shot Bickford in the shoulder and he was rushed to Bellevue Hospital along with the two officers. They are expected to survive it all.

The attack occurred just after 10 p.m., about eight blocks from Times Square, just outside the high-security zone where thousands of revelers were being screened for weapons as they prepared to usher in 2023.
