A Hitler lookalike has been arrested in Austria on charges of glorifying the Nazi era, local officials say.
"It was obvious that he glorified Hitler", police spokesman David Furtner told Agence France-Presse (AFP).
Glorifying Hitler or the Nazis is a serious crime in Austria, which was annexed by Nazi Germany in 1938.
He said the man had also been spotted in Vienna and Graz.
Austrian police have arrested a man described by local media as "Hitler's double" for possible violations of laws against glorifying the Nazi era. Prosecutors have confirmed the report.
He has been seen around town a number of times and was repeatedly pictured standing outside the corner house in which Hitler was born in April 1889.
The man, sporting a side parting and a trademark moustache, had been seen having his photograph taken outside the house in Braunau am Inn in which Adolf Hitler was born.
The house itself is also the subject of a legal battle between the owner and the government.
However, the retired women then filed a complaint with the Austrian Constitutional Court on January 31, disputing the lawfulness of the parliament's decision.
It is apparently set to be demolished in a bid to stop it becoming a focal point for neo-Nazis. The place is now gaining attention after the Austrian government declared the intent to acquire the house where Hitler was born.
