One person in custody after stabbing at Mall of America, authorities say

One person in custody after stabbing at Mall of America, authorities say

Police said their injuries were non life-threatening. When the victim returned to the dressing room, he confronted the suspect, and was stabbed.

Speaking at a news briefing Sunday night, Bloomington Police officials described how the suspect snuck into the men's room - as they were modeling outfits for friends outside - and tried swiping some of their belongings.

Police have named the man accused of stabbing two people inside the Mall of America during a botched theft attempt Sunday. 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". They don't believe the suspect knew the victims and Potts said he didn't know yet where the victims were from. The family members were able to disarm the suspect.

One witness, Kim Schwieters from Grant, told the Star Tribune she was at the mall with her children and went into Macy's just as the commotion started.

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