QUINCY (CBS) — Neighbors of the man charged with obstructing the Boston Marathon Bombings investigation described him as quiet and polite.
Following the arrest of Khairullozhon Matanov, 23, on Friday, two neighbors said Matanov was a cab driver who always said “hello” and “goodbye” when passing by in the apartment complex where he has lived for about a year-and-a-half.
However, two neighbors, Tyler Young, and a woman who declined to give her name, also noted that they saw police going in and out of the building a week after the bombings and throughout the past year. Plain clothes and uniformed officers would also remain outside and monitored the apartment.
“I only had suspicions just because of the police presence that were here,” Young told WBZ-TV.
“About a week after the bombings, there was FBI here, Quincy Police. I’ve seen them in and out over the year and the last marathon, there was police here the entire day.”
