PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — FBI agents and police are searching for evidence in the New Jersey neighborhood where the man suspected of plowing down people on a New York City riverfront bike path lived.

Law enforcement cordoned off an apartment building in Paterson on Wednesday. Officers also searched a garage.

The building's manager told The Record Sayfullo Saipov lived with his wife and two children in a two-bedroom apartment on Genessee Avenue. The man, who identified himself as Ali, says he rented the apartment to the 29-year-old several months ago.

A man who identified himself as Saipov's neighbor said he often saw Saipov standing on the corner talking to friends.

The city is home to a large Muslim population and a mosque is near the apartment.
