The man first attacked a passer-by at the station in the city of about 12,000 people, which is sixty kilometers south of Basel and about the same distance west of Zurich.

He walked away and assaulted several people before he retreated into a house.

After about two hours, the man was arrested by the police after being contacted by the special team. Police said he was also seriously injured.

The regional daily Aargauer Zeitung reported the testimony of a reader whose pregnant wife was allegedly hit by a stranger with a “metal object”. The husband told the newspaper that the woman “has a cut on her face and some swelling, but is in good condition.”
