At least two were stabbed at the Mall of America in Minnesota on Sunday night. When the police arrived, they learned the stabbing began after a theft was interrupted.

Jolene Situma said she was in the Macy's store when the incident occurred in the men's section. When the victim returned to the dressing room, he confronted the suspect, and was stabbed.

The victim was stabbed, and started to yell for help.

Hearing the victim's screams, the man's family rushed to his aid, only for Abdirahaman slashing a second person before they could wrest the knife from him told Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts during a news conference. When he left the fitting room to show the clothes to the other people in his party, Abdirahaman entered the fitting room to steal his belongings, Potts said. "Kind of drew attention to himself".

"Just lived through the scariest experience of my life", wrote Jolene Situma.

It is not believed the Abdirahaman knew the victims.

Those are the only details we have right now, but in the meantime, the Twitter Bigot Brigade™ is here to fill in the blanks with baseless accusations about the stabbing...

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