A person is in critical condition after being stabbed Friday inside a Massachusetts mall.

Police in Auburn confirmed that a victim was hospitalized after a stabbing in the Auburn Mall. Authorities began receiving 911 calls just before 6:15 p.m.

"We heard a lot of ruckus," said Kia Taylor, who was at the mall to buy a dress for her daughter. "I really wasn't sure what was going on at first, but I saw the suspect running to my left."

Then she saw the victim.

"I ran up to him and started yelling, 'You have to put pressure, you have to put pressure,'" she recalled. "I went up to his girlfriend and told her, 'Take your shirt off, take your shirt off,' so I could cover the wound so he wasn't bleeding out."

Taylor said she ended up taking off her own shirt to treat the man's injuries.

Video from inside shows police taping off a portion of the mall near the food court.

Police said that they were still searching for a suspect and that the investigation was active.
