A Boston man who has been on the run from the FBI is suspected of assisting Terrorist group ISIS.

According to ABC News, 32-year-old Ahmed Abousamra, a dual American-Syrian citizen who grew up in Stoughton and attended American College, is believed to be using his computer skills to help ISIS spread propaganda on social media.

This isn’t the first time intelligence officials have suspected Aboursamra of conspiring with terrorists.

In 2009 he was charged with terrorism related offenses and in 2013 he was added the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.
