Two Stabbed At Mall Of America

Officials identified him as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, 20, according to a local CBS report.

It was reported that the two men were confronting Mahad Abdirahman, the suspect, about stealing some belongings from a dressing room when they were injured.

Police have named the man accused of stabbing two people inside the Mall of America during a botched theft attempt Sunday.

The Minnesota's thief's plans were thwarted when his intended target caught Abdirahaman in the act, only for the would-be thief pulling a knife and stabbed the man in turn. One person was stabbed in the back; another was stabbed multiple times.


The scuffle and ensuing response by police led to disconcert as nearby shoppers waited in line for their kids to see Santa.

Bloomington police said officers were at the scene but offered no further information.

Abdiraham is being held on two counts of first-degree assault. Authorities say both men suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

"When that happened there was a couple of other members that assisted the victim, they went in there to help, in doing so a second victim sustained a knife wound". An investigation is ongoing. He got me!' I knew something was not right.
