Officers warned that Wrousis may be armed and asked anyone who sees him to contact police immediately, and to keep away from him.

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

The attack began in an insurance office in the historic Swiss town of about 34,000 people near the German border. Police do not believe the attack was sparked by a terror motive.

Wrousis fled the scene and was caught on camera carrying a black bag and a rucksack that likely contain the chainsaw and possibly other weapons, the 20Minuten website said, quoting Schaffhausen police.

Police said Mr Wrousis had been a customer of the firm. Another three people were slightly injured in the attack, police said, but there was no information on them.

Christina Wettstein, a spokesperson for the insurance company CSS, said two of the company's employees were injured, one seriously.

The Schaffhausen police department issued a new appeal for information on Tuesday.

Wrousis has been previously registered as living in the southeastern Swiss state of Grabuenden.

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

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.

Therese Karrer, who often walks her dog in woods south of Schaffhausen, said she saw the suspect several times in the last few weeks.

Schaffhausen is a city of about 36,000 north of Zurich, near the border with Germany.
