This was reported in the police department of Offenburg.

As eyewitnesses noted, the man is dressed in a camouflage suit. It is clarified that the suspect was able to disarm the police and hide in the forest.

“It is not yet possible to establish exactly whether the armed man is in a special psychological state and what kind of threat is coming from him,” the police said in a statement.

In May, four people with samurai swords attacked a police station on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
