Child hurt, suspect arrested in Mall of America incident

Mall of America: Boy, 5, thrown from balcony by stranger in Minneapolis | Daily Star

Per CNN, Potts said, "The child did suffer significant injuries".

Bloomington Police Chief Jeffrey Potts said witnesses told police that the child may have been pushed or thrown from the mall's third level to the first floor on Friday.

Police were called to the mall at 10:17 a.m. for a report of a child falling over a railing, but witnesses indicated the child had been "pushed or thrown", Potts said.

Aranda was chased and arrested Friday after the boy was thrown or pushed from a third-floor balcony and landed on the first floor at the mall.

Witnesses told police that the 24-year-old suspect took off running immediately after pushing the child.

Officers rendered aid to the child and they were taken to Children's Hospital. The complaint says Aranda approached a woman who was waiting for the restaurant to open and asked her to buy him something.

Police don't know why the child was launched over the railing, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said, adding that there doesn't seem to be any connection between the victim, his family and Aranda. Paul area is being held at the Bloomington Police Department. "Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with that child and his family in hopes that that child is able to recover". The boy suffered life-threatening injuries.

Detectives are also also working with the mall to determine if there is any surveillance video.

Shortly after the incident, police arrested a 24-year-old man inside the mall, one of the state's leading tourist attractions, after he had fled the scene, Potts said. Police didn't immediately respond to a message seeking details about the incident. "As the Bloomington Police Department continues to investigate how and why this isolated incident happened, we will provide our full cooperation". The child was treated at the scene and transported to the hospital.
