Two women injured in a stabbing inside a Maryland shopping mall six years ago have been awarded almost $1.6 million.

A Montgomery County jury on Friday found that Nordstrom was negligent in failing to stop the May 2005 attack on the two women, who were stabbed by a woman who entered the Bethesda store with butcher knives.

Kenneth Trombly, a lawyer for one of the woman, said Nordstrom failed to quickly evacuate the store and alert all the customers to the attack. He says Nordstrom failed to follow its own procedures in dealing with emergencies.

Nordstrom spokeswoman Tara Darrow said in a statement Monday that the company believes it did everything possible to protect its customers and that it was pleased the case was over.
