An American man, believed to have been fighting for ISIS, has been captured in Syria.
The man was captured by Syrian Democratic Forces earlier this month, according to a report by ABC news Saturday.
The 28-year-old is from Dearborn, Michigan and was one of several Americans to be apprehended on the battlefield, along with another couple from Indiana.
The case tests America’s ability to legally pursue suspected terrorists captured on the battlefield.
Last September officials said they had insufficient evidence to prosecute another American captured fighting for ISIS.
Authorities have set in motion a plan to bring the recent detainees to the United States for prosecution.
