Authorities Respond to Stabbing at Mall of America

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

"My daughter could see people lying on the ground who had been stabbed", Kim Schwieters, who was waiting to see St. Nick with her three children, said.

Police described it as an "interrupted theft".

The incident reportedly occurred in the men's department of Macy's shortly after 6.45pm local time in Bloomington, Minnesota. The first victim was stabbed after he returned to the dressing room and confronted a man attempting to steal his belongings. But he caught Abdirahaman in the act, and the would-be thief pulled a knife and stabbed him, authorities said. "Our officers arrived and took the suspect into custody", Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said, while addressing the media.




A statement by the department on its Twitter page also announced the unnamed suspect, who was identified as an adult male, was taken into custody.

Witnesses said they saw the suspect acting erratically before the stabbing. "Kind of drew attention to himself". She said she hid underneath clothing and called police. I heard someone screaming 'He got me! "He got me!'. I knew something was not right", Situma wrote.

Two other people that were with the victim ran to help, and confronted the suspect.
