Police say the incident happened Sunday evening in the dressing room area of the Mall of America's Macy's. Police say one victim was stabbed after confronting a man attempting to steal his belongings from the dressing room. The second victim was stabbed after intervening.
A 20-year-old man is in custody. The victims were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Maddie Schwieters tells KARE-TV she was in line to see Santa when she ran toward the commotion nearby and saw two people on the floor. The 16-year-old calls the incident "horrific." Police say shoppers weren't in any danger. Macy's closed early but the rest of the mall stayed open.
