Child critical after being thrown from third floor balcony

Minneapolis Police on April 12 2019

A witness at the Bloomington mall told WCCO that a woman was screaming that someone threw her child from the third-floor balcony.

Aranda was charged with attempted homicide and is now being held at the Bloomington Police Department.

A fundraising page was set up to help the family with their hospital costs which has now racked up over $330,000 and is rising by the minute. "Oh my God, my baby, someone threw him over the edge, '" Brian Johnson said.

"Potts said some of those cases were handled through mental health court, but he didn't elaborate".

Potts said Bloomington police have had three prior contacts with Aranda in 2015 - two of which were connected to incidents at Mall of America.

"But when you add in the element that this was a 5-year-old child - it makes it very, very hard on everybody that was involved", he said. The family is requesting privacy, I think that we just want to acknowledge that this is a horrific situation.

Onlookers said a woman began shouting after the child was attacked.

Police said Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, picked the boy at random and threw him over the third story balcony.

The 4.2-million-square-foot Mall of America is in Bloomington, about 10 miles south of Minneapolis. "The family and this child are in our thoughts and prayers".

Potts said investigators don't believe Aranda knew the boy's family and do not have a motive.

Aranda has been banished from the mall in past years, though authorities said the trespassing holds had expired by Friday's incident.

"Our immediate and only concern is for the well-being of the family and the child, as well as for any individuals who may have witnessed the incident". We know that this is a concerning event for all of us.

In that incident, he got into a physical scuffle with the manager of the restaurant, sending panicked diners fleeing, according to court records that also note Aranda at that point had been banned from Mall of America property through early July 2016. As the Bloomington Police Department continues to investigate how and why this isolated incident happened, we will provide our full cooperation'.

In October 2015, Aranda was accused of throwing glasses in Twin Cities Grill in the mall. As part of his probation for the assault in the restaurant, he was barred from visiting the Mall of America until December 29, 2017.

The complaint says Aranda approached a woman who was waiting for the restaurant to open and asked her to buy him something.
