An Algonquin man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed his ex-girlfriend at a suburban mall Wednesday night.

Twenty-year old William Clark is charged with attempted murder, armed violence and aggravated domestic battery.

Clark allegedly went to the Spring Hill Mall Wednesday night in West Dundee, walked into the store where his ex-girlfriend works, and forced her into a restroom. That's where he allegedly stabbed her with a 7-inch bayonet.

The woman underwent surgery and is expected to recover.
