WEST NEW YORK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – The sister of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects remains holed up at her home in West New York, New Jersey.
West New York Mayor Felix Roque said security remains in place near Alina Tsarnaev’s home.
“We have like five police officers at the scene inside and outside making sure that nobody goes in or threatens them or does any damage to them,” Roque told WCBS 880’s Jim Smith. “We’re going to be protecting them around the clock just to make sure that nothing happens to them.”
He said the town wants to offer this family as much as it needs. The mayor added he paid a visit to the sister right after her brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was captured late Friday night.
