Austrian police detained a man described by local media as “Hitler’s double” for possible violations of laws against glorifying the Nazi era.

Witnesses say the unidentified 25-year-old has a Hitler moustache, combs his hair in the style of the Fuhrer and dresses in Nazi-era regalia. Police said the suspect was detained after being seen repeatedly in front of the house where Hitler was born in the town of Braunau, on the border with Germany.

The house itself is the object of a legal battle between its owner and the government, which wants to take possession and remodel it to erase all associations with Hitler.
