Two stabbed after confronting alleged thief at Macy's in Mall of America

The suspect, 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Abdiraham, of Minneapolis, was attempting to rob one of the men, police said.

Abdirahaman sneaked into a men's fitting room at the Minnesota mall and tried to swipe something from a customer's belongings while the man was outside the fitting room modeling clothes for his family. A second person was also stabbed trying to stop the attempted robbery and stabbing. Their alleged assailant, Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, is being held on suspicion of first-degree assault.

At least three people were wounded in the attack, which is being described by police as "an interrupted theft".

Police said they don't believe the suspect knew the victims.

Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State Rally Past Iowa State in Wild 4th Quarter
With Iowa State driving for a potential game-tying score against Oklahoma State, we had us a near-simultaneous catch. But the end for the Cyclones - a 49-42 loss - was as devastating as it possibly could have been.

Both vicitims were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated with non-life threating injuries. They were transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis for treatment. "Our thoughts are with the families involved".

Officers were dispatched at 6.44pm to the mall and put the store on lockdown. And Deputy Chief Mike Hartley said no other patrons at the Mall of America were in danger.

The Mall of America has more than 520 stores and attractions that include an amusement park and an indoor zip line.
