Mesa police are searching for a man who randomly stabbed a shopper at a Fiesta Mall department store on Sunday.

Police investigate Fiesta Mall homicide

The victim was a 22-year-old male walking through the men’s department in Macy’s. He was hospitalized with non-life threatening wounds in the neck and shoulder, police said.

Police describe the suspect as a light-skinned Hispanic man in his late 20s to early 30s, 5-foot-9 and 210 pounds. He had a shaved head, and wore a gray t-shirt with blue jeans. The suspect fled in a green late-90s model two-door sedan, with tinted windows, old black rims and no hubcaps.

According to police, around 2 p.m. the suspect entered the store at 1465 W. Southern Avenue and approached the victim. The victim said he looked in the suspect’s direction as they passed, at which time the suspect turned around, grabbed him from behind and stabbed him in the neck with a knife.

The victim turned around and said to the suspect, "What are you doing? I don't even know you." The suspect replied by stabbing the victim in the shoulder three times.

The victim walked towards the cash register and the suspect continued to follow him. The suspect then left the store and entered a vehicle in the parking lot.

Mesa police spokeswoman Diana Tapia said Monday morning there are no further details.

Macy's referred all inquiries to the police.
