A woman jogger was killed by a naked man who was screaming and attacking people in a lakeside park in Switzerland, according to police on Wednesday. The incident occurred on Tuesday evening in Mannedorf on Lake Zurich, about 20 kilometers southeast of Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city, the Zurich cantonal police reported. A 19-year-old suspect has been arrested.

“On Tuesday evening a woman was attacked and fatally injured by a man in Mannedorf,” police said, adding that the woman had been out jogging.

“Shortly before 8:00 pm (1800 GMT), passers-by reported a man in Alma Park who was running around naked, screaming and physically attacking other people. The emergency services who quickly arrived on site found a seriously injured woman lying on the ground,” the police added.
