A woman has been charged with making a false police report after she allegedly fabricated a plot to blow up Dearborn Fordson High School to retaliate against the November terrorist attacks in Paris.
Saida Chatti was arraigned Thursday in Dearborn’s 18th District Court on charges of false report or threat of a bomb/harmful device, a felony punishable by more than five years in prison. Bond was set at $2,500.
Police say Chatti called Dearborn investigators Nov. 19, six days after Islamic extremists killed 130 people in Paris. Suicide bombers and gunmen struck a sports stadium during a soccer match, a theater during a rock concert, cafes and restaurants.
The Islamic State claimed responsibility.
Chatti “contacted the Dearborn Police Department to report that an ‘anonymous’ friend had overheard a group of individuals at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi threatening to bomb Fordson High School in retaliation for the attacks in Paris,” according to a Dearborn police press release.
