A sister of the Boston Marathon bombers was busted in New York City for allegedly threatening to blow up her live-in lover’s baby mama. Ailina Tsarnaeva, who lives in North Bergen, NJ, allegedly phoned the woman at her Harlem home on Monday and warned her to keep her distance or face explosive consequences.
NY Post Law-enforcement sources said Tsarnaeva’s boyfriend, George Briones, is currently embroiled in a bitter custody dispute with his ex over their three kids.
The woman told cops about Tsarnaeva’s alleged call, and Tsarnaeva turned herself in at Harlem’s 30th Precinct station house, where she was charged with aggravated harassment and later released, sources said.
No one answered at the alleged victim’s apartment Wednesday evening, and her mom refused to comment when reached by phone. But a neighbor in the building said the woman had obvious problems with her love life.
“I heard her talking with a friend in the lobby, [saying] that you cannot trust men, they are nothing but trouble,” the neighbor said. Tsarnaeva’s arrest marks at least her second brush with the law, following a 2011 charge tied to a counterfeiting case in Boston.
Prosecutors alleged that she knew the customers who left a fake bill to pay their tab at an Applebee’s restaurant in Dorchester, and that she lied to a detective who questioned her. Tsarnaeva skipped bail after getting busted on an obstruction charge. The case against her was later dismissed, according to a published report.
