The suspect in the June stabbing attack of a police officer at an airport in Flint has now been indicted on charges. 

Amor Ftouhi, 49 of Quebec, Canada, is charged with committing an act of violence at an international airport and interference with airport security. 

Ftouhi is expected to be arraigned today in federal court. 

Police say Ftouhi stabbed Lt. Jeff Neville in the neck at Bishop International Airport while referencing killings in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and yelling "Allahu Akbar" -- which is Arabic for God is great.
