NYPD Arrests Two Men Suspected in Terrorist Plot

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Two men described as home-grown radicals intent on committing a terrorist act in New York City were reportedly arrested by police Wednesday night.

Initial reports indicate the men were attempting to buy guns when they were arrested.

Details of the alleged terror suspects' identities are unknown.

The case, brought by the NYPD Intelligence Division, is currently slated for local prosecution under state terror statutes.

Though prosecuted in the aftermath of the killing of Osama bin Laden, it was not immediately known if the case had been developed prior to his death or if it arose afterward.
