A rookie police officer was struck in the head by a man wielding a hatchet in the New York City borough of Queens Thursday, in an assault that has police checking for any ties to terror organizations or whether the attack could have been inspired by Wednesday’s lone-wolf attack in Canada.

An NBC report is claiming that the alleged attacker ‘Zale Thompson’ graduated Columbia University, and served in the Navy.

Thompson, 32, lived in Queens Village, once served in the Navy and attended Teacher’s College at Columbia University from 2009 to 2010 but left before earning a degree. He had a Facebook conversation recently with a man on the subject of terrorism, police sources said. That man, Frank Sha Francois, 49, told the Daily News that they did talk about terrorism but denounced it in all its hideous forms.

“We spoke against all aspects of any type of terrorism — foreign terrorism, domestic terrorism, terrorism committed by groups and by governments. Any act of violence where innocent lives are spilled, we spoke against that,” Francois said.

“He never expressed to me, that I could recall, that he would do anything violent. Yes, he said there were things that needed to be done — nonviolent, collective action …. He said the people can’t take up arms against law enforcement; it would be suicide.”

Police say they have not ruled out links to ‘radical extremism.’ However a quick search on social media shows that the suspects’ Facebook page has links to extremism. Here are some images from the reported attacker’s Facebook page:
