Chainsaw-Wielding Attacker Injures 5 in Switzerland

Chainsaw-Wielding Attacker Injures 5 in Switzerland”

A chainsaw-wielding attacker injured at least five people, two of them seriously, and remains at large in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen, local officials said Monday.

Police say the man is risky and could still be carrying the chainsaw he used on Monday morning.

The attacker was identified as 51-year-old Franz Wrousis, a Swiss national with no fixed address who lives in a forest, Shauffhausen public prosecutor Peter Sticher said.

At a news conference later on police Major Ravi Landolt said that while the assault was not an act of terror, it was not random either.

The suspect is 6ft 2in, bald and with an unkempt appearance.

The attack began shortly after the suspect entered an office building in the northern town of Schaffhausen at 10:30 am (0830 GMT), local police said in a statement.

Another eyewitness said: "The police completely sealed off the old town".

Police said Wrousis, 51, who was not previously known in the area, is likely armed and risky. The Facebook post said that police found the suspect's auto, a Volkswagen Caddy, but that the suspect is still on the run.

The town center was cordoned off in the morning after police were alerted.

The company doesn't know yet whether the other three wounded people were customers or passers-by, she added.

One resident told reporters that the man had been reported to police before.

The man wounded five people inside the CSS Insurance Company in the small Swiss city of Schaffhausen.
