Two stabbed after confronting alleged thief at Macy's in Mall of America

Stabbing Confirmed at Mall of America

Authorities said both men suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The victim's family attempted to intervene and a second victim sustained a knife wound.

Bloomington police say a suspect is in custody in connection with the incident.

Twenty-year-old suspect Mahad Abdiraham was arrested at the Mall of America in Minnesota on Sunday after an alleged robbery gone wrong led to two people being stabbed.




A spokesman for the police department confirmed that other shoppers detained Abdirahman until police arrived on the scene and arrested him on two counts of first degree assault. One person is in custody and Bloomington Police is conducting the ongoing investigation. The family members were able to disarm the suspect. And Deputy Chief Mike Hartley said no other patrons at the Mall of America were in danger.

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. The suspect also was wounded. "By the time we got to the main area - the men's department is to the right - more police started running in with their guns drawn".

"My daughter could see people lying on the ground who had been stabbed".
