The man was seen on video placing two rice cookers at the Fulton Street subway station and another at West 16th Street and 7th Avenue.
The subway station was evacuated Friday after two of the devices were found. The New York Police Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau said the devices did not contain explosives.
