WORCESTER – A former student at Assumption College was arraigned today on charges connected to the bomb threat that closed the college this week, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
Mohammed Braimah, 21, of 922 Hyde Park Ave., Boston is charged with making a bomb threat, making a bomb threat that causes serious public alarm, and intimidation of a witness. Judge Paul L. McGill ordered him held without bail for a dangerousness hearing that is scheduled for Tuesday in Central District Court.
Judge McGill also revoked the defendant’s bail on pending cases in Central District Court and Roxbury District Court.
Assistant District Attorney Joseph Quinlan told the court that Braimah used the cell phone number of an Assumption student to create a phony Yahoo email account. Braimah used the email account to send a message to the college saying that several pressure-cooker bombs would be placed around campus.
