Chief: Boy thrown from Mall of America balcony being treated

Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda

Aranda, who lives in the Bloomington area, has a police record, including several arrests and convictions stemming from incidents at the Mall of America.

A five-year old boy was rushed to the hospital Friday morning after police said a man threw him from a balcony on the third floor.

Hanneman said his picture has been removed from the page because there have been "multiple people trying to copy this GoFundMe page and the family is still requesting privacy and has elected at this point not to share photos at this time"'.

"This is a horrific situation", he said.

He said that cops had given the child first aid along with members of the public.

"He was enjoying a day at the Mall of America with his mom and friend on Friday morning when a stranger maliciously grabbed him and threw him over the 3rd floor balcony for no apparent reason".

A witness, Brian Johnson, told WCCO-TV on Friday that he heard a woman scream that her child had been thrown from the balcony.

Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, was last night charged with attempted murder after Bloomington Police tracked him down.

Potts said prosecutors would finalize charges by Monday at noon.

Police do not think there is a relationship between Aranda and the child, but the Minneapolis resident has a history with the police, including a July 2015 incident where he threw an object from one of the floors at the same mall.

Witnesses said the boy's mother was screaming for help. "But as to why he did that, is still something we're looking into and trying to figure out".

Mall of America officials said any more information about the incident will come from police.

WTVR reports that in August of 2015, "witnesses saw Aranda smashing computers on the floor in the Minneapolis library, causing approximately $5,000 in damage, according to a 2015 complaint".

The Mall of America issued a statement on Friday, saying: "This was a senseless act and words can not truly express our profound shock and sadness".

"We are heartsick over what happened to Landen, your precious little boy", one couple posted after 1 a.m.

"It goes without saying, but any time you deal with a situation like this, it's very hard".

He reiterated that the family did not know Aranda and said they "are completely clueless as to why this monster would target their family with this heinous act of violence".
