    Ted Cruz warned Donald Trump not to "attack women" Thursday after the Republican front-runner appeared to escalate the personal feud over their wives, NBC News reported.

    "Donald, real men don't attack women," the Texas senator wrote after the billionaire retweeted an image in which Heidi Cruz was compared unflatteringly to Melania.

    The exchange came after Trump showed no sign of backing down in the dispute over a campaign ad, created by the anti-Trump Make America Awesome Again super PAC, featuring an old picture of Melania Trump posing nude for GQ magazine.

    Trump responded by making a threat regarding Cruz’s wife Heidi Cruz. The real estate mogul tweeted that the Texas senator should "be careful" or he would "spill the beans on your wife.”

    Yassin Aanouz returned to Brussels on Tuesday from Thailand, where the 20-year-old was vacationing with three friends.

    Aanouz stopped to pull a cardigan out of his bag, but his travel buddies didn't wait while he layered up and went on ahead. He was looking for them in the crowded airport when he heard a boom.

    Then the second blast — a bomb, Aanouz later learned, went off only seconds later not far from where he stood.

    "I saw people with blood, people on the ground ... I could see young children crying, moms looking for their children — it's the first time I was seeing something like this, the first time," he said. "I couldn't believe it was real. I didn't realize it was real."

    Bandaged and bruised, Aanouz found himself at home in the Brussels suburb of Anderlecht with his family. While he knows his physical wounds will heal, Aanouz is worried about another less visible scar from his brush with terrorism.

    Activist hacker group Anonymous is calling for people to stand up against discrimination as part of its fight against Islamic State in the wake of the Brussels terror attacks, NBC News reported.

    In a video posted to YouTube following Tuesday's bombings, an Anonymous member donning the group's signature Guy Fawkes mask condemned the deadly attacks, which were launched by a network tied to the terrorist group known as Islamic State, and vowed to "strike back."

    "You don't have to hack them. If you stand up against discrimination in your country, you harm them much more than by hacking their websites," the speaker says in the video, adding that Muslims in Europe could not be recruited by the militant group "if they are accepted and included in the society."

    The brothers behind the Brussels terror attacks also spied on a top nuclear researcher and hoped to build a so-called "dirty bomb," an expert involved in a probe into ISIS threats told NBC News on Thursday.

    Khalid and Ibrahim El Bakraoui were responsible for planting a hidden camera outside the Belgian researcher's house, according to Claude Moniquet, a French former intelligence official who was hired to investigate potential plots targeting Europe's nuclear sector.

    Authorities found 10 hours of film from that camera, showing the comings and goings of a senior researcher at a Belgian nuclear center and his family, officials announced last month.

    A San Diego man is at the center of a bizarre case out of Los Angeles where witnesses say he got angry and left a 13-foot python at a sushi restaurant.

    Hiroshi Motohashi, 46, was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats after restaurant employees say he finished paying about $200 for dinner. The dispute started when he brought out two small snakes and a manager told him to leave because pets are not permitted in the business. Motohashi became angry, left and returned with the large python, witnesses said. 

    “Customers were yelling at him to take it out,” said employee Jessie Davadorj.

    NBC 7 has learned Motohashi owned a reptile store in Hillcrest called A Glass Jungle. It is now closed, but previous customers said he would sometimes stand on University Avenue with a large snake on his shoulders to attract customers.

    Motohashi also has a criminal past that involves endangered animals. The Department of Justice confirmed that in 2005 he was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for illegally selling endangered species. In 1997, he illegally sold Gila monsters and yellow-spotted sideneck turtles to an undercover agent.

    NBC 7 was unable to get a comment from Motohasi Thursday.

    An LAPD source said he had bailed out of jail.

    His next court appearance is on April 5.

    A man was being called a "hero" after taking down a shirtless, unruly passenger on an Expo line in Los Angeles in an act that was caught on camera, and going viral Monday night.

    In the video posted to YouTube, which by Thursday morning had received more than two million views, a shirtless man can be seen confronting passengers on the train on Saturday night.

    The train was traveling on the La Brea line from the Crenshaw area to the Culver City station around 9 p.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed.

    As the 25-year-old shirtless man was badgering other riders, a man, identified as Adrian Kaczmarek, suddenly appears and puts him in a rear-naked chokehold, as seen in the video.

    "I was more concerned about my safety and the people on the train safety. I wasn't sure if he had a knife or if he had a gun," said Kaczmarek, who grew up in New York before moving to LA five years ago. 

    Kaczmarek dropped the subdued man to the ground, and then placed his foot on the man’s chest.

    "I finally saw it escalating to the point where he was getting physical and people are getting pushed around. The whole thing is about to explode. I thought the best thing to do was go over there and subdue him," Kaczmarek said.

    A transit officer arrived, but the man continued to struggle so Kaczmarek used the officer's handcuffs to restrain him at the Culver City Station. The shirtless man was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, authorities said.

    Microsoft is revamping its artificial intelligence chatbot named Tay on Twitter after she tweeted a flood of racist messages on Wednesday.

    The computer program, designed to simulate conversation with humans, responded to questions posed by Twitter users by expressing support for white supremacy and genocide. The account also said that the Holocaust was made up. The offending tweets were deleted, but outlets like Business Insider and The Verge kept a record of the snafu.

    Microsoft recently unveiled Tay with the goal of engaging and entertaining people online "through causal and playful conversation" according to Microsoft's website for the bot. The company said she is supposed to get smarter the more users chat with her, but within 24 hours of being on Twitter she went awry, according to The Verge.

    The chatbot's primary data source is public data that has been anonymized then "modeled, cleaned and filtered by the team developing Tay," according to Microsoft. That team includes improvisational comedians.

    Microsoft has said Tay is designed to interact with 18- to 24-year-olds, who are the dominant users of social chat services in the U.S.

    The company told TechCrunch in a statement that Tay is "as much a social and cultural experiment" as it is a technical one.

    "Unfortunately, within the first 24 hours of coming online, we became aware of a coordinated effort by some users to abuse Tay’s commenting skills to have Tay respond in inappropriate ways," Microsoft said.

    Tay has since been taken "offline and we are making adjustments," the company said.

    Former GOP presidential contender Ben Carson offered a lukewarm defense of Donald Trump's many controversies on Thursday, telling the hosts of ABC's "The View" that Trump's bombast is intended for political gain, NBC News reported.

    "But what we have to do is recognize we have to work with what we have, not necessarily what we ideally would want," the retired neurosurgeon said, adding that "we the people are largely responsible" because politicians respond when people stand up for what they believe. 

    Carson said his endorsement of Trump was going against the establishment which doesn't like “people who are not beholding to them, and people who are not controlling to them coming into Washington D.C.”

    The combative interview, in which the show's hosts repeatedly called Trump a "liar," a "racist" and compared him to Hitler, incensed the GOP front-runner, sending him to Twitter to express his disgust.

    The father who is accused of abducting his 7-year-old son in Trumbull and prompting an Amber Alert earlier this month appeared in court on Thursday and a judge issued a protective order for him to stay 2,500 feet away from his son and ex-wife.

    U.S. Marshals arrested 43-year-old Rodolfo Revello on Wednesday in the Bronx, New York, around a week and a half after he allegedly beat his ex-wife at her Trumbull home, then took his son, Ariel.

    According to police, Rodolfo Revello forced his way into his son's mother's home early on the morning of Saturday, March 12.

    The woman said she woke to find him near her bed and he began choking and biting her.

    The assault felt like it "lasted forever," she said, and Revello grabbed a knife from the kitchen at one point, but his 18-year-old stepson.disarmed him.

    The mother said Revello came back at her once again and she jumped out a second-floor bedroom window to the hard ground below to escape.

    Revello is accused of then taking jewelry and several thousand dollars in cash, then driving away with his 7-year-old son.

    That prompted an Amber Alert in Connecticut and New York and Ariel was found safe in Queens later that night, police said.

    According to police, Revello, who has a criminal record, did have visitation rights with his son while the mother would be at work.

    He has been charged with second-degree kidnapping, second-degree larceny, criminal violation of a restraining order, second-degree strangulation, second-degree assault, second-degree threatening, second-degree criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

    His bond remains at $500,000.

    He appeared in court on Thursday and the judge ordered protective orders for the two victims, which require Revello to stay 2,500 feet away from them.

    If Revello is able to post bond, he will have to wear a GPS device on his ankle.
