The New York Post tracked down one of the roommates of the Saudi national questioned yesterday in connection with the horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon, and he reportedly described the man as a “good” guy who is “quiet and clean.”

Police searched their apartment last night, though it’s not clear what they found.

The New York Post writes:

Mohammed Badawood, 20, described the potential suspect as “quiet and clean” and said he last saw him two days ago. Badawood told The Post he moved into the apartment about five months ago.

“He’s a good boy,” Badawood said of the potential suspect today. “I think he couldn’t do that.”

Officials showed up at the Revere apartment at about 5:30 p.m. yesterday in unmarked vehicles, a resident of the building said.

About an hour later, more vehicles, carrying agents of the FBI, Homeland Security and ATF also descended on the site, along with firefighters and a bomb squad.

Badawood said officials were searching his apartment when he arrived home last night at around 7.

At least three people were killed and 170 injured in the tragic attack yesterday.

The 20-year-old Saudi national is reportedly still under guard at a Boston-area hospital, but is still being referred to as a person of interest.
