Police say they are looking for a man who was recorded on security footage placing a pair of rice cookers in a New York City subway station.

The discovery of the cookers in a Lower Manhattan station Friday prompted an evacuation and roiled the morning commute. A third cooker was later discovered in another part of town above ground.

Senior NYPD official John Miller says cameras in the Fulton Street station captured a man with a shopping cart putting cookers in two locations in the subway station.

He says police were trying to identify the man.

Miller said it was still unclear whether the man was intentionally trying to alarm the public or “discarding items he was no longer interested in.”

Miller says all three cookers were the same model.

They were found at the line that carries No. 2 and 3 trains around 7 a.m.

The station is a busy transit hub a few blocks from the World Trade Center.

In 2017, a would-be suicide attacker set off a homemade pipe bomb in an underground passageway at the Times Square subway station during rush hour, seriously injuring himself.
