Police investigate stabbing at Mall of America

Bloomington police say a suspect is in custody after a stabbing at Macy's in the Mall of America

Officials identified him as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, 20, according to a local CBS report.

Two people were stabbed at the nation's largest mall Sunday evening in what police say was an "interrupted theft".

Police say the suspect is now in custody.

He said the others who had come to help were from the same group as the victim and he could not immediately clarify if they were family members.

The incident took place inside one of the department store's dressing rooms, where Abdirahaman was allegedly attempting to steal another shopper's belongings.

One victim was reportedly stabbed in the back and another has numerous knife wounds.




Maddie Schwieters tells KARE-TV she was in line to see Santa when she ran toward the commotion nearby and saw two people on the floor.

"Just lived through the scariest experience of my life", wrote Jolene Situma.

Among the witnesses to the incident were a crowd of people waiting to visit Santa Claus.

Those are the only details we have right now, but in the meantime, the Twitter Bigot Brigadeā„¢ is here to fill in the blanks with baseless accusations about the stabbing...

It is not believed the Abdirahaman knew the victims.
