BRANCHBURG — A woman from New York has been charged for allegedly making terroristic threats against a former co-worker.

Quanajah Pinnock, 27, was arrested without incident at approximately 6 a.m. on July 28, according to the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office.

Authorities were alerted to the matter on June 21, when Branchburg police responded to a township business for a report of threats that had been received by an employee. According to a female worker on site, she had been receiving life-threatening text messages and phone messages from a former co-worker from a past employer. The threats were directed at the victim and her current place of employment, authorities said.

As a result of an investigation, authorities charged Pinnock with terroristic threats and false public alarm. Authorities nationwide were alerted of a criminal warrant for her arrest.

Pinnock is lodged at Rikers Island Correctional Facility, pending an extradition hearing to New Jersey.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
