Suspect arrested in Switzerland chainsaw attack

Swiss forensic officers investigate at a crime site in Schaffhausen Switzerland

A dog-walker said she had seen him in the woods near Schaffhausen for the last few weeks.

He is believed to be bald, around 190cm tall, with an unkempt appearance, detectives said, and thought to have been living in a wooded area close to the town.

Swiss police are hunting for the man who wounded five people in the city on the border with Germany and have sealed off the city's Old Town area.

On Monday afternoon, police found the Volkswagen minivan with registration plates from Graubuenden that the suspect was believed to be driving.

The authorities said that they were still investigating the motivation for the attack, but that Mr. Wrousis appeared to have been targeting employees of CSS Insurance who were working in the company's office in Schaffhausen. He appears to be wearing a green windbreaker and black pants, police said.

Authorities say the suspect has two previous convictions for weapons offenses and no fixed residence.

She announced that she has nominated Assistant Chief Medaria "Rondo" Arradondo to lead the department. Ms Damond called back eight minutes later to ensure police had the correct address.

Two people injured were taken to a hospital for treatment, the police said.

Several other residents told the site they had also passed by Wrousis in the forest - about two kilometres from Schaffhausen - and that his behaviour had been threatening. She said two staff members were among the injured.

"We have information that this man is unsafe, that he is aggressive and, shall we say, psychologically disturbed", Landolt added.

Franz Wrousis was arrested in Thalwil, some 45 kilometers (28 miles) from the scene of Monday morning's attack in Schaffhausen, police said. Schaffhausen police released a photo of Wrousis taken before the incident on CCTV cameras.

"I talked to him a few times and walked by his vehicle every day with our dog", said Karrer, who lives in the village of Uhwiesen.

Schaffhausen, with a population of 36,000, is the capital of the Swiss canton of the same name.
