A WOMAN is reported to have been beheaded after a teenager armed with a chainsaw went on the rampage at a shopping centre.
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 on Saturday.
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.
Photos posted on social media show police cars and ambulances at the scene.
The motive behind the attack is not yet known, with officers urging locals not to speculate and spread "panic" online.
The woman killed in the bloody rampage is believed to be in her 30s.
