"My daughter could see people lying on the ground who had been stabbed", Schwieters said. When officers arrived, they learned the incident started after a theft was interrupted.
The Minnesota's thief's plans were thwarted when his intended target caught Abdirahaman in the act, only for the would-be thief pulling a knife and stabbed the man in turn.
A 20-year-old suspect is in custody.
According to authorities, Abdiraham tried to steal personal belongings of two shoppers who were changing in the men's fitting room, but the shoppers discovered Abdiraham during his theft attempt and fought him.
Family members were apparently able to disarm the suspect and Bloomington police took the suspect into custody.
"We saw two cops running toward Macy's", she said. Meanwhile, the suspect is also believed to have been wounded. I heard someone screaming 'He got me! He got me!'. I knew something was not right.
Some shoppers tweeted about the incident, saying they hid underneath clothing racks and other places.
