Watertown, Mass., April 19 (Reuters) - Boston Police said on Friday they have taken custody of the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings and are sweeping the suburban Boston neighborhood where he was captured after a massive manhunt.

Authorities said they had custody of the suspect, earlier identified as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, one of two brothers believed to have carried out Monday's attack, which killed three people and injured 176.
