Man Claiming to be Mashiah Interrupts Rav Ovadia's Amida

From Kikar:

An apparently disturbed individual interrupted Rav Ovadia Yosef's Amida of Arvit on Hoshana Rabba, claiming "I am Mashiah Ben David.  I request that Rav Ovadia annoint me as the king."

Everyone, including apparently Rav Ovadia Shlit"a himself, was afraid of the man.

He was quickly taken out of the Beit Midrash by reporter Ephraim Gilad, who described the man as extremely strong, and said that he was afraid for Rav Ovadia's safety.  He told him not to return there again.

Why not also make sure he gets treatment and brought to his family.Or if dangerous call the police so he can be involuntarily hospitalized.That is caring for another Jew.This is pikuach nefesh.
