It is too early to determine whether terrorism played a role in the stabbing of a police officer at a Michigan airport, the FBI said

The suspect, who was taken into custody, allegedly yelled "Allahu akbar" -- Arabic for "God is great" -- before attacking the officer at Flint's Bishop International Airport, according to reports.

Multiple reports identified the injured officer as Lt. Jeff Neville, who was reportedly stabbed in the neck.

The suspect, who has yet to be officially identified, is being questioned, the FBI's Detroit field office said.

The FBI statement said that based on current information the bureau believes the attack to be an isolated incident.

"We currently have no specific, credible information that there is a threat to the Flint community," the bureau said.
