  • A chilling image has emerged of a man carrying a chainsaw in his gym bag moments before he used the weapon to go on the rampage through a Swiss town

Swiss police have issued an worldwide arrest warrant after a man went on the rampage with a chainsaw in the northern border town of Schaffhausen, BBC reported on Tuesday (July 25).

The attacker was identified as 51-year-old Franz Wrousis, a Swiss national with no fixed address who lives in a forest, Shauffhausen public prosecutor Peter Sticher said.

Police issued a brief statement announcing the arrest but said they would give no further details before a news conference scheduled in Schaffhausen on Wednesday.

Another three people were slightly injured in the attack, police said, but there was no information on them.

In the aftermath of the attack, Swiss media reported that two of those injured in the incident were employees of an insurance company.

CSS offices in Schaffhausen, a quiet medieval town of 36,000 residents, and in other parts of the region remained closed on Tuesday while the manhunt continued, a company spokeswoman said.

The chief of security in Schaffhausen, Ravi Landoldt, has described Wrousis as a "dangerous and aggressive man", who had been convicted for weapons offences in 2014 and again in 2016.

Despite relatively low crime rates, Switzerland has one of the highest rates of firearm ownership in the world and police said it was likely that the suspect was carrying weapons.

Police described Wrousis as a 6-foot-2 loner with an unkempt appearance who mainly lives in forests but who visits populated areas.

Police hunt for Wrousis.

Beer said police can't say with certainty what implement the man used to wound the others.

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

Karrer said Wrousis showed up three or four weeks ago in the forest and chatted with her once when he was having breakfast behind his auto. It showed a tall, balding man with short brown hair walking along a street in a green jacket carrying a large black bag.

He had been acting bizarrely and "told my dog he had a great haircut", said Karrer.
