Man who stabbed several NYPD officers with machete on New Year’s Eve sentenced to 27 years

Trevor Bickford was sentenced on Thursday to 27 years in prison for attacking three New York police officers with a machete-style knife in the name of jihad.

On New Year’s Eve 2022, Bickford, 20, traveled from his home in Maine to New York City to execute his attack during the Times Square New Year’s Eve festivities. Before executing the attack, Bickford screamed “Allahu Akbar,” a phrase used by radical Islamic groups while carrying out attacks, according to the Justice Department. He swung his blade at their heads, causing serious injury to all three, and he also attempted to grab one of the officer’s guns. One of the officers managed to shoot Bickford in the shoulder, putting a stop to the attack.
