NYPD: Boston bombing suspects wanted to come to New York to party
The men suspected as the Boston Marathon bombers wanted to drive to New York to “party,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is in custody at a hospital, reportedly told investigators that they wanted to relax after the bombings last week.
“The information that we received said something about partying or having a party,” Kelly told reporters.
Tsarnaev had visited New York in November, Kelly said.
He added that the NYPD has no information that the brothers had plotted a terror attack in the city.
News outlets had previously reported that the two brothers had told a man whose car they hijacked that they were planning on going to New York.
