Police made a large showing at the Mall of America Sunday night after a reported stabbing the men's department at Macy's.

Police swarmed the Mall of America Sunday night after a reported stabbing in the men’s department of Macy’s.

For the second time in just over a year, a Somali “refugee” has stabbed shoppers with a knife at a Minnesota mall.

The first case, on Sept. 17, 2016, was a clear act of jihad when Dahir Adan injured 10 people in the Macy’s at the Crossroads Center Mall in St. Cloud after asking his victims, chosen at random, if they were Muslim.

But on Sunday night a man identified as Mahad Abdirahman, 20, of Minneapolis stabbed two men at the Mall of America after they tried to stop him from stealing clothes inside the dressing room at Macy’s.

Abdirahman is a common Somali Muslim name.

Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said in a news conference that “the suspect went in and tried to take some property and, when confronted, he produced a knife and stabbed one man. Some family members assisted the victim and a second man sustained another knife wound.”

The first floor of the Macy’s store was temporarily closed after the incident.

KSTP reporter Beth McDonough reported heavy police presence at the mall Sunday night up to 10 p.m.
