German police say they have searched the residence of an 89-year-old man suspected of taking part in the 1945 massacre of more than 60 Jews in Austria by the Nazi's paramilitary SS.

State police in North Rhine-Westphalia told The Associated Press they are now evaluating documents seized from the residence of the man — identified only as Adolf S. — as part of their investigation into his involvement in the massacre in the village of Deutsch Schuetzen, southeast of Vienna.

The man is suspected of being one of three SS men who massacred some 60 Hungarian-Jewish slave laborers the month before the end of World War II.

Police said Wednesday that the man invoked his right not to make a statement to them during Tuesday's raid in the city of Duisburg.
