Bomb suspect: ‘Rejected’ after Filipino father, Italian mom split

USA media reported Sayoc had once danced as a male stripper, and The New York Daily News quoted an event promoter as saying the suspect would dance at strip clubs and ran a show called "Girls Night Out".

Sayoc's arrest Friday in Plantation, Florida, about 30 miles north of Miami, ended a almost weeklong stretch of terror where at least one bomb was found each day.

The Department of Homeland Security has said there are no links to worldwide terrorism.

"We must never allow political violence to take root in America", he added. "And I'm committed to doing everything in my power as president to stop it and to stop it now".

A van belonging to Cesar Sayoc covered in blue tarp was towed by FBI investigators to FBI Miramar Headquarters.

A Facebook profile that appeared to belong to Sayoc featured videos and photos of him at multiple Trump rallies, including at least one in Florida. Officials will be holding a press conference at 2:30 p.m. ET to discuss further details. A complaint is expected to be filed by the Southern District of NY, meaning the man will face charges in Manhattan.

No one claimed responsibility for parcel bombs, which were denounced by authorities as terrorism, and came less than two weeks ahead of U.S. congressional elections that could alter the balance of power in Washington.

The big break came when a fingerprint found on one of the packages, intended for California Rep. Maxine Waters, matched a fingerprint of Sayoc's on file with Florida authorities.

Federal authorities arrested a South Florida man after finding one of his fingerprints on the explosive packages mailed out to prominent Democrats this week. Cory Booker and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on October 25.

Because of the vehicle's exterior stickers, she said she would not let Sayoc deliver during the day.

The man was taken into custody in the Miami area, a US law enforcement official said.

According to CNN, Mr Sayoc told police the bombs would have done no injury and he didn't want to hurt anyone.

A man named Dre, a manager at a used auto dealership next door to the AutoZone, said he heard a loud noise that sounded like an explosion shortly after 11 a.m.

"I could really tone it up, because the media ... has been unbelievably unfair to Republicans and certainly to me", Trump said Friday. "I opened the door and saw the Federal Bureau of Investigation there".

Fiori said within minutes he heard a small explosion, probably a device police use to distract people. "I have been briefed by FDLE on developments regarding the attempted bombings. I appreciate the hard work of law enforcement to bring swift justice to whoever is responsible for these cowardly acts", tweeted Scott.

Former US President Barack Obama has mocked his successor Donald Trump for the "massive" number of indictments in his administration. None of the 13 devices was detonated.

Wray added that authorities believe other bombs may still be found.

They said investigators searching for more suspicious parcels had not found any during the previous eight hours.

Investigators have declined to say whether they were built to be functional.

The string of packaged bombs sent to several Democratic figures and critics of President Trump this week were "not hoax devices", FBI Director Christopher Wray said Friday.

But two federal officials involved in the investigation cautioned that it was too early to say whether the devices were incapable of firing or were deliberately created to frighten rather than explode.
