A man armed with a chainsaw injured five people in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen Monday, police said.
“For now, there are five people injured … two seriously and three lightly,” Schaffhausen police spokeswoman Cindy Beer said in a video clip posted on the Blick news site.
The police said they have identified the suspect, who is on the run, and have released a description of him. They added that this was “not a terrorist act”.
The area has been sealed and local shops shut down, according to multiple media outlets.
