Woman stops traffic with warning of ISIS threat
A large number of police officers was deployed Tuesday afternoon when a 39-year-old Bridgeport woman was discovered standing in the middle of Tunxis Hill Road, near the Andros Diner.
An officer on patrol around 1:45 p.m. came upon the woman, who he said was yelling and screaming, "ISIS is here!" an apparent reference to the Islamic group, as she clutched a Bible in the street.
Several other officers, and members of the department's Crisis Intervention Team, arrived at the scene and ushered the woman off the road.
