Authorities say police are questioning a young man with mental problems who managed to reach the hospital floor where Premier Silvio Berlusconi, is recovering from an attack.

Milan anti—terrorism police official said the man “wanted to pay a visit on the premier at 2 a.m” on Wednesday. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity because he didn’t have advance authorization to talk with a reporter.

Police were questioning the 26—year—old Turin man at Milan police headquarters but planned to release him. The police official said the man apparently is a supporter of the premier.

Berlusconi, 73, was struck in the face Sunday as he signed autographs in Milan. The attack broke his nose and two teeth and cut his lips. The attacker has been detained.
