Police have taken into custody and questioned a Saudi national in connection with the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon, law enforcement officials told one reporter.

The New York Post reported that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents questioned the 20-year-old suspect at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, while he was being treated for shrapnel injuries on his leg. They’re keeping him under heavy guard and in custody, The Post reported.

The man’s Revere, Mass., apartment was raided and searched yesterday afternoon, The Post reported. But it’s still not clear what, if anything, they found.

Authorities continued the search at the hospital, combing through the man’s clothing for clues, The Post reported.

Fox News said Tuesday morning the Saudi is a student, and he is being officially labeled by law enforcement as a person on interest.
