Tsarnaev sister arrested in alleged bomb threat

Bishkek (AKIpress) - ailanaA sister of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was arrested in New York Wednesday after allegedly threatening a woman in a domestic harassment case, saying, “I have people that can go over there and put a bomb on you.”

Ailana Tsarnaeva, of North Berger, New Jersey, was arrested at a police station in New York City Wednesday afternoon, charged with one count of aggravated harassment. She was released with a summons to return to a criminal court in Manhattan on Sept. 3, according to police Lt. John Grimpel, the Boston Globe reported.

Grimpel said the victim of Ailana Tsarnaeva’s alleged threat has a child with the father of one of Tsarnaev’s children. Grimpel did not elaborate on the nature of the dispute. Tsarnaeva told police that she is 21, though she is believed to be three years older.

Her younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is awaiting trial in federal court, accused, along with his older brother, of setting off the April 15, 2013 bombs at the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured more than 260. Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev are also accused of shooting and killing MIT police officer Sean Collier days after the bombing. Tamerlan was later killed in a violent confrontation with police.

Ailana and another sister, Bella Tsarnaeva, have visited their brother Dzhokhar at the federal prison in Fort Devens in Ayer, where he is being held. Defense lawyers have sought to have private conversations with Dzhokhar and his sisters as they seek to learn more about their family history. Defense attorneys expect to argue that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was pressured to participate in the bombings by his older brother.

Ailana Tsarnaeva has been arrested before. She was charged with impeding a 2010 investigation into counterfeiting, and later failed to appear in court. The investigation was based on the passing of a counterfeit bill at an Applebee’s restaurant in Dorchester. She is not accused of passing the fake currency, but police say she knew members of the group who did.

Bella has also faced criminal charges. She faced marijuana charges in New Jersey and agreed to probation.

The two Tsarnaeva sisters are believed to be staying together in New Jersey, and New York media outlets recently reported that Tamerlan’s widow Katherine Russell, who had a child with him, recently moved in with the sisters.
