A man took a butcher knife from the housewares section of a Target store on Thursday night and stabbed a female shopper in the back, Dallas police said.
Antowann Davis, 30, apparently picked the woman at random and dropped the knife inside the store before fleeing, police said.
Davis was arrested by arriving officers near the store, Lt. James Walton said.
The victim, identified as Dallas attorney Martha Jones, was stabbed in the lower right back, "causing pain and profuse bleeding," according to the police report.
A woman who answered the phone Friday afternoon at Jones' office said she was doing better. Jones is an associate at the prominent law firm Fish & Richardson.
"You wouldn't expect it at Target," said one woman. "It's kind of scary."
