NBC: Police Were Investigating Saudi Man When They Searched Revere Apartment

April 16, 2013 3:43 a.m.

When law enforcement personnel descended on a suburban Boston apartment complex late Monday night they were investigating a 20-year-old Saudi man who is in the United States on a student visa, according to NBC News.

During an appearance on MSNBC on Tuesday morning, NBC’s Pete Williams reported that the man was being treated for “fairly serious burns” in a Boston hospital, where he was questioned at length on Monday night.

According to Williams, the man was seen running away following the deadly explosions that erupted near the finish line of the Boston Marathon and witnesses said he “appeared to be acting suspiciously.” But still, Williams noted that investigators are not jumping to any conclusions about the man, who has denied having anything to do with the deadly bombings.

State and federal law enforcement officials searched an apartment complex in Revere, Mass., located north of Boston, where the Saudi man reportedly lives.
