Two Stabbed During Theft From Macy's Dressing Room At Mall of America

The scuffle and ensuing response by police freaked out nearby shoppers waiting in line for their kids to see Santa. Police say one victim was stabbed after confronting a man attempting to steal his belongings from the dressing room.

Police have not yet announced any charges brought against the suspect.

The second victim, who was believed to be a family member or friend of the other victim, was stabbed after intervening. Both individuals were transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis for treatment.

One woman tweeted: "Just lived through the scariest experience of my life. He got me!'. I knew something was not right", Situma wrote.

A 20-year-old suspect, whose name hasn't been released, is in custody, Bloomington Police said in a statement on Twitter. Another man in his party responded to the victim's cries for help and was also stabbed, Potts said. Their alleged assailant, Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, is being held on suspicion of first-degree assault.

Most stores close at 7 p.m. local time on Sundays, though some restaurants in the mall stay open until 9 p.m.

Bloomington police did not immediately return a call requesting further comment Monday.
