The man accused of launching a chainsaw attack that wounded five people at an insurance office in Switzerland has been taken into custody, police announced Tuesday.

Swiss police say a man who injured five people with a chainsaw is still on the loose and a massive manhunt is underway on the Swiss-German border.

Swiss police had earlier admitted they did not know where Wrousis had gone, and he could have crossed into Germany. Two of the victims had received no physical injuries but had been treated for shock.

It is not known why he assaulted the workers at the office of insurance firm CSS, of which he was a client.

They confirmed that he is on the run and described him as bald with an unkempt appearance and around 190cm tall.

A health insurance company that has an office in the building where the attack took place said two of its employees had to be taken to a hospital, Blick reported. They underwent surgery and are recovering, she said. He has no known fixed abode but is known to have stayed in wooded areas.

Police released the CCTV image as they stepped up an global manhunt for the 51-year-old, who they described as unsafe, aggressive and mentally unstable.

Swiss Public Television SRF tweeted a series of past photos of the suspect that offer a better clue of what the man looks like.

Authorities issued old photos of Wrousis wearing a green T-shirt and black jeans, standing among trees.

Speaking to 20 Minuten, Ruedi Karrer, the president of Uhwiesen, two kilometres from Schaffhausen, said Wrousis had been living in the nearby forest for two weeks prior to the attack.

On Tuesday, they urged people to exercise caution when in the area's forests as long as the suspect remained at large.

Prosecutor Peter Sticher said Wrousis has two previous convictions for offenses against weapons laws, one from 2014 and 2016. A 100-strong police force is looking for the suspect and has involved personnel from the Forensics Institute in Zurich.
