A bloody ambush robbery of a Life Time Fitness member in an Eden Prairie locker room left the man badly beaten, and one of his two assailants unleashed a similar attack on a resident in a randomly chosen home in the city about an hour later, according to charges filed Tuesday.
Arrested and charged in the Sunday attack at Life Time Fitness were Dalal B. Idd, 18, of Eden Prairie, and Kamal E. Maqadin, 26, of Shakopee. Both remain jailed pending appearances Wednesday in Hennepin County District Court.
The fitness center victim was punched repeatedly Sunday afternoon by Idd and left barely conscious on the floor of the downstairs locker room with cuts to his face, a broken nose and eyes that were swollen shut, the complaint said.
Entry for club members, guests and potential new members is allowed only at the check-in desk. The employee at the check-in area attempted to have these people wait, and they did not, Thunstrom said. The staffer followed security procedures and notified the rest of the staff in an effort to find these individuals and notify authorities, the spokesman added.
But the two clearly did not waste any time carrying out the attack, Thunstrom said. They were bound and determined to commit such an act.

Don’t go anywhere you cannot go armed. Really.
Such nice Lutheran names, too!
Who would've ever suspected?
Looks like this one may be a Sons of Baraq/ROP twofer!
Two more feral dogs
Well, maybe they did the man a good turn...
A new conservative / former liberal, mugged by the reality that his worldview was WRONG.
Probably not bad advice: Another story this week from another MN Gym.
“On Sunday, city police responded to a call involving 10-15 people fighting at the gyms Cleveland Avenue location. It started all on the basketball court over a call and escalated, moving into the main fitness area.
People were actually throwing two and a half, five, 10 pound weights within the building, said Police Lt. Lorne Rosand.”
I don’t give a rat’s ass if it’s racist, both of these clowns deserve the Toby treatment from “Roots.”
i wonder what jail time, if any, they will get. whats the sentence for those crimes in that state/?
There go the Amish again...
Does make you wonder what their immigration status is.
I live a few blocks from there. This is really out of character for the neighborhood.
This is all very confusing. Even I am not sure if what they did is a crime anymore? Perhaps Idd and Maqadin are the real victims here. It’s hard to tell since we’re not told whether the two men who were beaten were in some protected class or not.
EP has become yet another Somali cesspool. Friend of mine is looking to move away.
EP is the latest hunting grounds for the Somalis.
This is what “Minnesota Nice” gets us. We can’t be nice to everybody. We need to stop bringing in these awful immigrants from Somalia, etc.(if that’s the case—but how can it NOT be with names like those).
I have to rope, you find the tree.
I grew up in next door Bloomington in the 60s and 70s. It was a nice town then, and Eden Prairie was a mostly rural town.
East Bloomington has become an inner city sewer, but I thought West Bloomington and Eden Prairie were still in good shape as somewhat upscale suburban neighborhoods.
I am surprised to read that this happened in Eden Prairie
If they had committed this crime in the downtown area of Minneapolis it would hardly be mentioned in the news. Since they did it in the swanky suburb of Eden Prairie, at a very nice health club, they are going to get quite a bit more attention.
Probably ELCA . . .
They kind of look Somali to me.
Gee, I wonder why COMMENTS don’t seem to be enabled by the Red Star for this story . . .
On business trips to Minneapolis I used to go to the Redstone there. Great music and food.
5 years ago I wouldn’t have known what a Somali looked like.
Now these are the kind of dogs I will never have a problem with being shot on the spot!
Check out the comments here.
Although the media refuses to report certain facts about these stories, it seems that a very large percent of the population is VERY aware of the situation.
Last time I was in the Twin Cities I was simply astounded by the number of Somalis that had suddenly appeared.
Public showers and locker rooms, you are asking for it.
My Glock shoots when wet...;)
If you go into a mall in the Twin Cities, and you don’t see a sea of black head scarves, something is very wrong. Turn and run back to your car. They probably know something you don’t.
Idd admitted to police that he went into the locker room with the intent of robbing someone and punched the victim five or six times in the face.
Ive carried concealed inside lifetime before. Easy peasy.
“””EP is the latest hunting grounds for the Somalis.”””
Come to think of it, about a half mile south of Lifetime I have seen an apartment complex that looks like it is full of them.
and you carry into the showers....??
A couple of years ago, my friend that currently lives in EP, called me and asked me to stop by his place. “Bring your Sig and a holster”, he said.
The somali crowd had started hanging out in front of his favorite liquor store and they were harrassing the customers as they went in and came out. The store owner asked him if he knew any other permit holders that would like to open carry in and around his establishment.
That’s when he called me. We strapped and headed straight for the liquor store.
Took about four appearances from us and they finally got the message.
I don’t use public showers. Easy enough. I have all the workout tools in my garage. I don’t need to belong to a gym full of hipsters and fags.
There are a lot of “wilding” Presbyterians in Eden Prairie, and I suspect these two Trayvons were part of that group.
Exactly! And btw, look all the time off the victim now gets to spend more time with his family (Nancy Pelosi logic).
Unprovoked attacks like these should always be considered attempted murder.
Are EP liquor stores municipal?
