Two men were stabbed inside a Macy's store at the Mall of America in Minnesota just before closing Sunday night, the Star Tribune reports.

 

The suspect was taken into custody following the incident. Police said it was an "interrupted theft" that led to the stabbings. 

According to police, the suspect waited until two men left the dressing room and then attempted to steal their belongings. The men interrupted the suspect, who pulled a knife and stabbed the victims. Other shoppers subdued the suspect until police arrived.

The victims had non-life threatening injuries.

 

The stabbings occurred on the first floor of Macy's, in the men's department, the Star Tribune reported

Police were seen running through the mall toward the store, witnesses said.

Most stores close at 7 p.m. local time on Sundays, though some restaurants in the mall stay open until 9 p.m. The stabbings were reported around 6:45 p.m.
