Swiss forensic officers investigate at a crime site in Schaffhausen Switzerland

A man armed with a chainsaw wounded at least five people, two of them seriously, on Monday in a small Swiss town that was then put into lockdown as police hunted for the suspect.

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. "We didn't see him as a threat or anything", he said.

The company doesn't know yet whether the other three wounded people were customers or passers-by, she added.

The perpetrator had fled by the time police arrived.

The suspect has a health insurance policy with the company, she said. In a warrant issued for his arrest, Mr. Wrousis was described as aggressive and psychologically unstable, and as having a "disheveled" appearance.

Swiss media reported that Wrousis was a CSS client.

Franz Wrousis, 50, was arrested in Thalwil, a town about 60km (37 miles) from Schaffhausen, the border town where the incident took place.

State police say they will release new evidence on the main suspect in the killing of two northern in girls in February . If you recognize the man in the sketch, you are urged to call the tip line at 844-459-5786.

Wrousis was previously registered as living in Graubuenden canton, in Switzerland's southeast. The victim with the most serious wounds is now out of danger, police said according to the BBC.

Armed police stand guard at the scene of the attack in central Schaffhausen.

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

They later released another photo of Wrousis, which they said was taken immediately before the attack. Police do not believe the attack was sparked by a terror motive. They did not elaborate on its condition or say if anything else was found in it.

Schaffhausen is a city of about 36,000 people north of Zurich. In recent weeks he was seen a lot in forests near Schaffhausen.

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

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.
