Two shoppers stabbed at Mall of America
A blade-wielding suspect knifed at least two people inside a Macy’s at Minnesota’s Mall of America on Sunday night, according to police and reports.
The assailant was captured shortly after the 7 p.m. attack in the massive Bloomington mall, cops said.
The suspect was not immediately identified and the extent of the injuries were not immediately clear.
The Star Tribune reports the suspect was wounded in the melee, that left one of the victims with numerous stab wounds. The other victim was stabbed in the back.
A woman who said she witnessed the assault in the men’s department at Macy’s heard someone screaming, “He got me! He got me!”
“I knew something was not right. Some other shoppers ran towards the screaming,” tweeted Jolene Situma.
“I called the police and hid,” she added.
