Child attack suspect had previous Mall of America arrests

A 24-year-old man was arrested Friday in an incident in which a 5-year-old child may have been pushed or thrown from a balcony at the Mall of America police said

The 24-year-old is being held at the Bloomington Police Department in relation to the incident.

No details were immediately available about the child's condition.

The boy fell to the first floor alongside escalators by the Michael Kors and Clarks stores.

Aranda ran from the scene but was arrested in the mall's transit station.

Police do not believe there was any connection between Aranda and the five-year-old boy, nor between Aranda and the boy's mother.

"At this time the suspect does not appear to be known to the victim or to the victim's family", the news release states.

A witness said a woman screamed that her child was thrown from the balcony. Police don't think there is any relationship between the man and the child or the child's family. He said a thorough investigation will be conducted to find out the motive for the incident.

'The child did suffer significant injuries, ' he said.

Witnesses said the child was his mum when he was snatched - being either thrown or pushed from the third floor in an apparently random attack.

The police department is working with the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office crime lab to investigate the incident, and they are also working with the mall to determine if any surveillance video exists of the incident.

The suspect, a 24-year-old man, was arrested on charges of attempted homicide at the mall's transit station and is now in police custody, according to the Bloomington Police Department. Officers gave first aid but the 5-year-old child suffered "significant injuries" and had been taken to a hospital, Potts said. Following that incident, he was convicted of obstructing a legal process by interfering with a police officer.

The Star Tribune reports that the child was being treated at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis.
