Charges: Man Stabbed Mall Of America Victims With 8-Inch Blade”

Hennepin County prosecutors on Tuesday charged a Minneapolis man with two counts of felony first-degree assault in the Sunday night stabbings of two shoppers at the Mall of America.

When he returned to the dressing room, 20-year-old Mahad Abdiraham was near it and looked as if he was about to go inside.

One of the brothers, 19-year-old Alexander Sanchez, of Minneapolis, had tried on trousers in a men's department fitting room and left the room to show his family how the trousers fit.

The suspect in the Minnesota mall stabbing was acquitted in a case in June that involved stabbing two people in a psychiatric unit with a pen because of mental illness, court documents show. He came out of the dressing room to show his family the trousers he was thinking of buying.

Abdiraham is making his first court appearance Wednesday and it's unclear if he has an attorney.

Alexander Sanchez suffered cuts across his face, head and arms, some to the bone.

Security footage showed Abdiraham's purchase of the gloves, and that he put them on before going into the dressing room before Alexander Sanchez's return.

Sanchez had been shopping with eight family members around 6:30 Sunday evening. The victim tried to pass him, and Abdiraham started slashing him.

The victim's family heard him screaming, and a 25-year-old family member went to his rescue with another family member, according to the complaint.

The injured brothers and other family members were eventually able to subdue Adiraham, and take away the 8-inch knife he used in the attack. The victim's 25-year-old brother jumped in and was slashed so badly he needed 42 stitches to close wounds to his back. He later required a blood transfusion and will most likely have permanent head scarring, medical personnel told authorities. John Sanchez's back required 42 stitches to fix, the complaint said. He faces a maximum 40 years in prison and/or $60,000 in fines.
