Police are searching for a madman that has attacked people with a chainsaw after walking into a health insurer’s office. The attack is currently not labeled as an act of terror, although it was surely terrifying.
The incident took place in the town of Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Police are currently still searching for the suspect and photos of the man have been released.
According to reports, five people have been injured. Among the injured, two are listed in serious condition. At this time, no one has been reported as killed. The fate of the attacker is still unknown as well.
Media outlets around the globe swarmed to cover the story. Some compared the attack to the cult-classic movie “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”
According to the Associated Press, the suspect is listed as Franz Wrousis, 51, and he has two previous convictions for weapons offenses and no fixed residence, authorities said. A dog-walker said she had seen him in the woods near Schaffhausen for the last few weeks.
“This was first and foremost a crime against this insurance agency,” senior regional police official Ravi Landolt told reporters. “We have information that this man is dangerous, that he is aggressive and, shall we say, psychologically disturbed,” Landolt added.
