Insurance firm: 2 employees hurt in Swiss attack

Chainsaw attacker injures five in Swiss town

Police distributed photos of Wrousis that show him looking dishevelled.

The suspect is described as 186m tall with brown short hair - contrary to a previous police statement that he was bald.

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 a white Volkswagen minivan that the suspect was believed to be driving. He appears to be wearing a green windbreaker and black pants, police said.

Wrousis has been charged twice in the past for having illegal weapons, in 2014 and 2016, but he wasn't sentenced to prison, Schaffhausen public prosecutor Peter Sticher said Monday.

The attack - which the authorities stated was not terror-related - was reported to the police a little after 10:30 on Monday morning.

Two people were seriously hurt.

BBC women journalists want wage reform now - not in 2020
That we find ourselves, 47 years after the Equal Pay Act was passed, with persistent pay inequality is appalling . A BBC spokesman reiterated that "significant changes" had been made but they recognised that more had to be done.

The suspect's vehicle, a white Volkswagen, has been found but he remains on the run and is presumed unsafe, although not necessarily armed, ATS said, quoting police. They have undergone surgery, she said, and their lives are no longer at risk.

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

Police said the attack is not being treated as an act of terrorism.

Therese Karrer, who often walks her dog in woods south of Schaffhausen, said she saw the suspect several times in the last few weeks. The lakeside town is in Zurich canton (state), Schaffhausen's southern neighbor.

Cindy Beer, from the areas police force, told local media that the victims had been injured with a chainsaw, and detectives later added that it was believed the suspect was still carrying the weapon.

They also published several photos of the suspect, one of them taken shortly before the attack.
