Near Lake Zurich in the Swiss city of Männedorf, a naked man attacked and fatally wounded a female jogger, leading to his arrest.

The incident occurred on Wednesday evening in Alma Park, located by Lake Zurich.

At around 8:00 PM, passers-by alerted the police to the presence of a naked man assaulting people in the park. Upon arrival, police found a severely injured woman and a man at the scene.

Despite efforts to resuscitate her, the woman, whose identity has not yet been determined, died on the spot.

This incident was covered by the Swiss news outlet SRF.

Arrest and Investigation

The suspect, whose relationship to the victim is currently unknown, was arrested at the scene. Police are investigating the weapon used in the attack and have yet to release information about the suspect's background or any potential mental health issues.

This incident follows another attack by the same suspect on Tuesday evening, where a person sustained minor injuries. Witnesses reported that the attacker shouted before assaulting people in the park.

Männedorf Mayor Wolfgang Annigofer expressed shock, noting that the town has not experienced such violent incidents before, aside from typical summer noise complaints in the park.

In response to the attack, the local council plans to discuss enhanced security measures, including increasing patrols, at their meeting on Wednesday night.
