Authorities have one person in custody after two people were hurt during a stabbing in the Mall of America in Minneapolis on Sunday. When the police arrived, they learned the stabbing began after a theft was interrupted.

It happened around 6:45p.m.in the men's department of Macy's, which is not far from the mall's Santa Experience.

After the victim let out a scream, his family rushed to help him while the suspect allegedly stabbed a second person.


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.

"We saw two cops running toward Macy's", she said. When he left the fitting room to show the clothes to the other people in his party, Abdirahaman entered the fitting room to steal his belongings, Potts said. One man told Schwieters that he appeared to be having a conversation with himself, even yelling at times. "Kind of drew attention to himself".

Among the witnesses to the incident were a crowd of people waiting to visit Santa Claus. I heard someone screaming 'He got me! "He got me!'. I knew something was not right", Situma wrote.
