Malik Sanchez Wiki – Malik Sanchez Biography
Malik Sanchez allegedly walked up to the two women eating at the outdoor seating area of the Flatiron District restaurant and said he was going to, “Enhance their meal.” “Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Bomb detonation in two, in two minutes. I take you with me and I kill all you. I kill all of you right now. And I kill all you for Allah,” Sanchez ranted at the women, according to court docs.
“I’m gonna f**king do it for Allah,” he added.
This wasn’t the first time he has been arrested for his YouTube stunt. In the charging document, an FBI agent said he reviewed a number of videos in which the 19-year-old is seen accosting other women on Manhattan streets, including one in which he praises Elliot Rodger, a self-proclaimed incel who killed several people in California in 2014.
Strauss said, “As alleged, Malik Sanchez perpetrated a hoax bomb threat at a Manhattan restaurant that frightened innocent victims, sowed chaos, and diverted precious law enforcement resources. Today’s arrest makes clear that such conduct will not be tolerated.”
FBI Assistant Director Sweeney Jr on the other hand added, “Whether real or perceived, a threat of violence is a serious action with real-life consequences. In this case, Sanchez’s alleged behavior carries the potential for a federal prison sentence. Anyone who intends to carry out a similar hoax should know that the FBI’s JTTF is ready and willing to respond.”

Charges – Arrested
In a charging document, an FBI agent wrote that he reviewed a number of videos that showed Sanchez accosting other women on Manhattan streets, including one in which he praises Elliot Rodger, a self-proclaimed incel who killed several people in California in 2014.
“F—k you, you b—ch. It’s cause of you, it’s cause of you that I’m a virgin — I have incel rage. You know what? Elliot Rodgers was good. Elliot Rodgers was a good guy,” he said in the video, according to the complaint.
“I swear to God … They deserved to be run over and hit by a truck. They deserved to be slaughtered,” he added, speaking about Rodger’s victims.
In another video, he turned to a group of people on a stoop and said, “I pull out Glocks, baby,” while invoking Rodger’s name.
Sanchez had been arrested a number of times for his YouTube stunts in recent months, including for climbing the Queensboro Bridge and for allegedly spraying mace at several people while live-streaming the assaults, Assistant US Attorney Kaylan Lasky said at his presentment Wednesday.
While arguing for him to be held without bail, Lasky said his conduct had been escalating in recent weeks, noting that police allegedly found five magazines that could fit a Glock pistol when he was arrested Wednesday.
She added that one of the women at the Flatiron restaurant was “paralyzed” by fear when he made the bomb threat.
His court-appointed attorney argued that Sanchez is just 19 years old and actually knew some of the people who he accosted in his videos.
But Judge Ona Wang ordered him held without bail, pending his trial in Manhattan federal court.
The New York FBI praised his arrest Wednesday.
“Anyone who intends to carry out a similar hoax should know that the FBI’s JTTF is ready and willing to respond,” FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. said in a statement.
