More than $436K raised for boy thrown from Mall of America balcony

More than $436K raised for boy thrown from Mall of America balcony

On Friday, 24-year old Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda allegedly threw the child, who has not been identified, from the third floor of the mall, police said.

A 5-year-old child who was thrown off a 3rd floor balcony at the Mall of America faces multiple surgeries.

The boy was thrown from the third-floor balcony at the Mall of America.

Bloomington Chief of Police, Jeff Potts, said: "Additional information from witnesses indicated the five-year-old might have been pushed or thrown".

Potts said on Saturday there were "a lot of witnesses that were helpful" in the incident Friday.

A witness said he heard a woman screaming that her child was thrown off the balcony, WCCO reported. In one 2015 incident, Aranda was charged with damaging stores by throwing items from the upper level to the lower level, according to court records obtained by WCCO.

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

Potts said he expects to turn the case over to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office on Monday for a decision on formal charges.

"The child has been transported to the hospital and has been receiving care".

Bloomington police Chief Jeffrey Potts said in a news conference Saturday that the boy fell almost 40 feet after a man threw him off the balcony Friday. "We started this GoFundMe for their family to help cover the enormous medical costs and rehabilitation costs for the long ahead".

"I know there's been some reports and some concerns about whether or not he is still alive", Potts said.

After fleeing the chaotic scene at the mall, Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, who has a history of mental health problems, was taken into custody at the mall's transit station.

Aranda was under a trespass notice at the time banning him from the mall until July 4, 2016. The woman laughed off the request, records show, and sat down inside.

A month later, in August 2015, Aranda told authorities he has "anger issues" when he was arrested on a felony property damage charge at the public library.

"As the Bloomington Police Department continues to investigate how and why this isolated incident happened, we will provide our full co-operation".
