Police have 'subject in custody' following stabbings at Mall of America

Two people reportedly stabbed at Mall of America

A statement from Bloomington police said: "A subject is in custody after a stabbing at Macy's".

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.

Local police told reporters the suspect had attempted to steal from a man in the fitting rooms before stabbing him and a male relative who was trying to help.

At least three people were wounded in the attack, which is being described by police as "an interrupted theft". The second victim was stabbed when they tried to intervene.

Some shoppers tweeted about the incident, saying they hid underneath clothing racks and other places.


Police have a suspect in custody. Authorities say both men suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

While the Macy's store closed early, the rest of the mall, with its more than 520 stores, remained open.

Other Twitter reports said the first level of the mall was locked down, the reports said.

Abdirahaman, who is now being held on two counts of probable cause first-degree assault, was pictured in his mugshot bruised and bloodied.
