LYNNWOOD, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a man was stabbed Christmas Eve while trying to break up a fight at a mall north of Seattle.

Lynnwood Police say officers were dispatched to what was initially believed to be a shooting at Alderwood Mall. They arrived to find a 19-year-old man being detained by a witness and mall security.

Police say the young man got into a fight with another teen, and then stabbed a man in his 30s who tried to stop it. The victim suffered a single knife wound and was taken to a hospital.

Though the investigation isn’t over, police don’t believe the suspect knew the man he’s accused of stabbing.
