BERLIN (AP) -- An unkempt man armed with a chainsaw wounded five people Monday at a health insurance office in the northern Swiss city of Schaffhausen and then fled, police said. A manhunt was on for him.

Five people were taken to the hospital, including two with serious injuries who worked for the CSS insurance company.

Swiss police were alerted to the attack at 10:39 a.m. A rescue helicopter was brought in to help the victims and the old town in Schaffhausen was sealed off.

Police warned that "the suspect is dangerous" but added "this case is not a terrorist act." They said it wasn't clear whether he still had the chainsaw.

By Monday afternoon, Swiss police had identified the suspect, whom they described as being about 1 meter 90 centimeters tall (6.2 feet) with a bald head and an unkempt appearance. They did not name him but released old photos of the suspect wearing a green T-shirt and black jeans, standing among some trees.
