There are reports of a terror attack in New York City, after an explosion was felt Monday morning in a Subway station near Times Square.

Commuters said they felt a blast in the Subway tunnels underneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal around 7:30am. The bus terminal is a major transit hub for people commuting to and from New Jersey by bus, and is located just a block from Times Square. 

Police have taken one man into custody, who was wearing a pipe bomb with wires and a battery back, a source told theNew York Post.  He was injured when the bomb malfunctioned, but is alive and in stable condition, according to the FDNY. 

The FDNY says a total of four people were injured and that the injuries were non-life-threatening. The injured count includes the suspect. 

While the suspect has not been identified by name, the Post reports that he is 27-year-old Bangladeshi national who lives in Brooklyn and has been in the U.S.for seven years.
