  • At least two people were reportedly stabbed at the first floor Macy's in the Mall of America in Minnesota Sunday night

A suspect attempting to steal personal items from a men's dressing room at Macy's at the Mall of America stabs two people.

One victim was reportedly stabbed in the back and another has numerous knife wounds.

Macy's was closed Sunday night while police investigated the incident. "Our officers arrived and took the suspect into custody", Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said, while addressing the media.

This is a breaking story.

"There were a couple of other family members who went to assist the victim, and in doing so, another person suffered a knife wound", Potts said.

Potts said two adult males were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Members of the victims family intervened.

Reports on Twitter said the stabbing happened in the men's department at Macy's on the first level.

Witnesses said they saw the suspect acting erratically before the stabbing.

"I knew something was not right. Some other shoppers ran toward the screaming, and someone (who I believe was the victim's brother) yelled '911!' I called the police and hid".
