Indonesian activists hold candles for the recent victims of terror attacks during a vigil in Jakarta

Several masked men attacked the Riau Police headquarters at around 9 a.m. on Wednesday with sharp weapons and firearms, killing one police officer and injuring another. Gen. Setyo Wasisto said in a press briefing in Jakarta. Another man was arrested and four others were suspected to have fled the scene, it said.

TV footage showed one man lying on the ground with a long sword next to his body and an armoured vehicle stationed outside the police station.

Riau Police Chief Inspector General Nandan said a group of suspected militants crashed a auto into the gate of the headquarters around 9 a.m.

No group has taken responsibility so far.

The company intervened, confiscated the suspect brownies and called police before the brownies could be eaten, Hart said. Officers questioned the woman, who denied putting anything illicit into the mix, the Saline Post reported .

The report said that the men had driven their auto into the police yard before getting out to stage the attack.

It was not clear if Wednesday's incident was linked to the earlier attacks in Surabaya, Indonesia's second biggest city, which have been claimed by the Islamic State group. Another police officer and a journalist were also wounded in the sword attack.

Indonesia - which is set to host the Asian Games in just three months and an IMF-World Bank meeting in Bali in October - has long struggled with Islamist militancy, including the 2002 Bali bombings that killed over 200 people in the country's worst-ever terror attack.
