Glendale police arrested a medical student suspected of threatening classmates.

Glendale resident Mona Asadi, 29, is facing four felony charges of computer tampering by using a computer in a course of conduct that threatened, terrorized and/or tormented specific individuals, police say.

On April 21, the dean of a university contacted police and reported that medical student, Asadi, had allegedly threatened to bomb the campus. On June 9, a mass email was sent out to hundreds of students naming specific victims that the author wanted to kill, according to police. Several more emails were sent in group messages allegedly threatening death and involving the families of the students.

Asadi was arrested by detectives on June 16.

She was allegedly linked to email addresses, social media accounts and electronic devices that were involved in the threatening messages sent to the victims.

Four specific victims were identified during the investigation.

The FBI Phoenix Field Office assisted with this investigation.

Glendale police are not releasing which university was involved, but did say that the campus was not in the city limits.
