Just hours after Omar Mateen, a man who claimed to have connections with the Islamic State terror group, shot and killed 49 people at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, a New York City restaurant received a suspicious call from an “unidentified individual” also claiming to be linked to the group.

The suspect placed a call Sunday afternoon to Lillie’s Victorian Establishment near Times Square and “made threatening statements,” the NYPD told TheBlaze.

“I have sworn allegiance to ISIS. I am going to come kill you all now,” the caller reportedly said, according to DNA Info.

Lillie's manager was not available for comment Tuesday, but an employee working at the Victorian-themed restaurant said she had heard about the call but was not working Sunday afternoon.

A complaint report for aggravated harassment has been prepared, police told TheBlaze Tuesday. So far no arrests have been made.
