MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) -

Bloomington police say two people were stabbed during an "interrupted theft" in a Macy's dressing room at the Mall of America.

Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said at 6:44 p.m., officers were called to Macy's on a report of a stabbing. Potts said a suspect had gone into a dressing room in the men's department and attempted to steal some property. When the owner of the property confronted him, the suspect produced a knife. Potts said during the confrontation, the suspect stabbed the victim.

Potts said the victim's family members went in to help, and a second victim sustained a knife wound. He said the family members were able to disarm the suspect, and officers arrived shortly after to take the suspect into custody.

Potts said two adult male victims were brought to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He said the suspect had "minor, superficial wounds" and was transported to jail.

The investigation is ongoing and police are interviewing witnesses.
