Two people were stabbed during an attempted robbery in the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota on Sunday, authorities said. Police say one of the men was stabbed before he was able to disarm the suspect. A stabbing at one of the nation's largest malls has left two people injured and shoppers who were waiting to see Santa Claus shocked following what police call an "interrupted theft".
Police identified the suspect as 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman.
This is a breaking story. Police don't believe the suspect and victim knew each other.
The only way Mall of America stabbing will make it on the news is if suspect was carrying a Robert E Lee statue, KKK member, or wearing a Trump hat.
While the Macy's store closed early, the Mall of America stayed open and was not placed on lockdown.
Both victims were taken to a nearby hospital with what police describe as non-life threatening injuries. The suspect was also wounded, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Schwieters added her daughter saw two people on the ground.
Those are the only details we have right now, but in the meantime, the Twitter Bigot Brigade™ is here to fill in the blanks with baseless accusations about the stabbing...
