Suspect in Mall of America stabbing identified

Two people reportedly stabbed at Mall of America

At least three people reportedly were stabbed at Mall of America in Bloomington shortly before 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Maddie Schwieters tells KARE-TV she was in line to see Santa when she ran toward the commotion nearby and saw two people on the floor.

Chief Potts says the victim interrupted the theft and the suspect pulled a knife on him. Police say one victim was stabbed after confronting a man attempting to steal his belongings from the dressing room.

A statement by the department on its Twitter page also announced the unnamed suspect, who was identified as an adult male, was taken into custody. He stabbed them both before being brought down and subdued by other shoppers, cops said. They don't believe the suspect knew the victims and Potts said he didn't know yet where the victims were from. "Kind of drew attention to himself". I heard someone screaming 'He got me! "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".

Among the witnesses to the incident were a crowd of people waiting to visit Santa Claus.

Police arrested the suspect, who was held by other shoppers after the incident, the Star-Tribune reports.
