Chainsaw-Wielding Man Injures Five in Switzerland

An attacker wielding a chainsaw has injured five people in Switzerland — and is still on the run.

The man launched his attack at an office building near Schaffhausen, a mid-sized town near the German border, on Monday morning, police said.

The suspect was described as being 6' 2" tall, bald and of a "scruffy appearance." Police said he was driving a white VW Caddy with a Greek number plate. They warned that he is still dangerous.

Swiss media outlets shared photographs allegedly of the suspect. He is not bald in the pictures but is said to have shaved his head since:

Officials in the town confirmed that the man was armed with a chainsaw. Two of his victims were described as being seriously injured, while the other three were less badly hurt.

A statement from the police said the attack was "not an act of terrorism."
