When Sanchez exited the dressing room with his things, Abdiraham took a knife to him, according to the complaint. When he returned, he noticed Abdiraham standing outside the fitting room, "looking as if he thought about going inside", according to the complaint.
His family heard the screams and rushed to help.
John Sanchez came to his brother's rescue with another family member. Sanchez's brother John Sanchez, 25, was stabbed while trying to grab the knife from Abdiraham, the complaint said. His brother needed dozens of stitches to close his wounds, the court filing revealed. He tried on some trousers and went to show them to his family.
Eventually, the victims and witnesses subdued Abdiraham until police arrived.
