Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehvz) sister has been accused of threatening to bomb a New York City woman and has been arrested.
Police say Ailina Tsarnaeva (tsahr-neye-EH’-vuh) made the threat via telephone Monday, allegedly telling the woman, “Leave us alone. I know people who can put a bomb on you,” according to the New York Post.
Law enforcement sources reportedly told the Post that the woman is the mother of Tsarnaeva’s live-in boyfriend’s children. The boyfriend is reportedly in the middle of a tense custody dispute involving their three children.
Tsarnaeva turned herself in Wednesday and was charged with aggravated harassment.
