Two men stabbed at the Mall of America

The 20-year-old suspect accused of stabbing two men at the Mall of America in Minnesota has been identified.

One of the victims was trying on clothes with a group of friends or family members in the men's department at Macy's shortly before 6:45 p.m.

Others in the party disarmed the attacker and restrained him until police arrived, according to police.

Bloomington police say a suspect is in custody in connection with the incident. Another man in his party responded to the victim's cries for help and was also stabbed, Potts said.

One witness, Kim Schwieters from Grant, told the Star Tribune she was at the mall with her children and went into Macy's just as the commotion started.
