- A generous man decided to show his support for first responders following the explosion in Chelsea, New York.

Video shows the man approaching the officers with several bags of pastries and coffee from Starbucks.

The man thanks the officers for their service and says he wishes "he could give more."

He and the officers introduce themselves and shake hands, as they thank him for his kind gesture. 

Police have since connected the New York City and New Jersey shore town bombings and say the same man is being sought for questioning in both.

Authorities are seeking 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan. His last known address was an apartment in Elizabeth, New Jersey, above a fried chicken store, where the FBI executed a search warrant before 6am Monday morning. 

The explosion in Manhattan on Saturday injured 29 people. They have all been released from the hospital at this time. A pipe bomb also exploded Saturday in Seaside Park ahead of the race for Marines and sailors, but no one was injured.
 
The apartment search began after one of five devices found at the nearby Elizabeth train station exploded while a bomb squad robot attempted to disarm it. No one was injured.

Authorities had been questioning several people as they try to determine any possible connection between an explosion in New York's bustling Chelsea neighborhood, an unexploded pressure-cooker device found blocks away and a pipe bomb blast in New Jersey.

FBI spokeswoman Kelly Langmesser had said agents conducted a traffic stop of "a vehicle of interest in the investigation" of the Manhattan explosion Sunday night in Brooklyn.  A law enforcement source told Fox News that a “number of individuals” who are possibly connected to the explosion were taken into custody and law enforcement officials told the Associated Press at least five men were being questioned. The two officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about an ongoing investigation. Langmesser said no one has been charged.
 
The White House said President Barack Obama was briefed throughout the night and early Monday on the investigation into bombs found in New York City and New Jersey. Spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama will comment publicly later Monday.
