A suspect is in custody after two men were stabbed at the Mall of America during what police called an "interrupted theft".

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

What started as simple robbery attempt quickly escalated into a violent, multi-victim incident after the would-be thief was caught stealing from two men inside a fitting room. The victim's family attempted to intervene and a second victim sustained a knife wound.

Oklahoma State Clinches Win Over Iowa State WIth Controversial End Zone Interception
Iowa State's 35-31 lead was trimmed when Oklahoma State settled for a 41 yard field goal by Matt Amendola on the ensuing drive. Iowa State fell to 6-4, and the loss left it behind Oklahoma, TCU, Oklahoma State and West Virginia in the Big 12 at 4-3.

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

Police said their injuries were non life-threatening. "The suspect is in custody". Police don't believe the suspect and victim knew each other.

While the Macy's store closed early, the rest of the mall, with its more than 520 stores, remained open. Both individuals were transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis for treatment. Their alleged assailant, Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, is being held on suspicion of first-degree assault. And Deputy Chief Mike Hartley said no other patrons at the Mall of America were in danger.
