A sister of Boston Marathon bombing suspect was arrested in New York City after authorities say she threatened to “put a bomb” on a woman.
Ailina Tsarnaeva, of North Bergen, N.J., was charged with one count of aggravated harassment and release pending a hearing next month. Tsarnaeva already has been required to check in with Massachusetts probation officers after prosecutors said she refused to cooperate with a 2010 counterfeiting investigation.
Police Lieutenant John Grimpel told the Boston Globe that the victim of Ailina Tsarnaeva’s alleged threat has a child with the father of one of Tsarnaev’s children. Tsarnaev, who is believed to be in her early 20s, is accused of telling the woman that “I have people that can go over there and put a bomb on you,” several media outlets reported.
