An RCMP terrorism probe in the nation’s capital has grown to include a third accused with the arrest Monday of a 21-year-old man who police allege conspired with a pair of identical twins arrested days earlier.
Suliman Mohamed, 21, was arrested Monday and charged with participating in the activity of a terrorist group and conspiring to participate in a terrorist activity.
Police confirmed that Mohamed’s arrest is connected to the arrests of 24-year-old twins Ashton and Carlos Larmond, who were swept up by RCMP on Friday.
Ottawa police were on scene at Mohamed’s grandmother’s house on Ste-Cecile Street in Vanier Friday night as part of an RCMP national security investigation.
On Saturday, two days prior to his own arrest, Mohamed answered the door at that address, where he also lives. He would not say if he knew the Larmond brothers.
