Female jogger killed by naked man speeding through Swiss park

Zurich – A female jogger was killed by a naked man who shouted and attacked people at a lakeside park in Switzerland, police said on Wednesday.

A 19-year-old suspect was arrested.

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