Horror as teenager armed with chainsaw ‘BEHEADS woman’ in shopping centre rampage
The 18-year-old, who was also carrying a hammer, carried out the horrific attack at the Evropa shopping centre in Minsk, Belarus.
Terrified eyewitnesses claimed the youngster wore a mask as he burst into the busy mall through a side entrance.
Hundreds of people were in the centre at the time of the attack.
It is understood the evil thug chased shoppers and struck close to a pizza restaurant.
One onlooker told Belarus news website Onliner: “He lashed out at the nearest person and cut off her head.”
Police spokesman Alexander Lastovsky confirmed the assailant was detained within two minutes.
He added: “When he took out a chainsaw, shoppers first thought it was some kind of game.
“Then he cut one woman badly with the chainsaw and hit her with a hammer. She died. He also attacked others.”
Officers cordoned off the mall at around 6pm local time (4pm UK time) and have launched a probe into the shocking incident.
