He was stopped around 6:30 p.m. on Monday. He had a hunting knife, a wire that is typically used for strangling, eight feet of rope, handcuffs, an m-100 and a water pistol. After raiding his apartment, police found more fireworks. Wang was also carrying a garrote. This is used to keep fingers from being cut on the wire while someone strangles their victim.
