Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda has been charged with attacking a 5-year-old boy at the Mall of America Friday. Cops said the child fell three floors after being pushed or thrown over a railing

A man at the Mall of American in Minnesota apparently threw a 5-year-old boy over the third floor railing, and so far no one knows why.

Mall of America security tracked Aranda's location using cameras in the mall, allowing Bloomington police to apprehend him in the mall's transit station. He said she was screaming, "Everybody pray, everybody pray".

It has been reported that Landen Hoffmann from Woodbury, Minnesota, was tossed to the marble ground beneath the balcony on Friday (12 April) as his mum screamed: "Oh my God, my baby - someone threw him over the edge".

The Chicago Tribune reports that Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, of Minneapolis, has been arrested on a suspicion of attempted homicide charge after witnesses to the attack identified the man. Aranda is supposedly banned from the mall, but somehow entered and randomly attacked the innocent boy.

The child was rushed to a hospital after officers and passers-by provided aid at the scene, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said.

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.

"The child is still alive and receiving care", he said.

Witnesses said the boy's mother was screaming for help.

Potts said the Mall of America will often give a no-trespass order to offenders, with a time limit appropriate to the crime. Potts believes this most recent incident is isolated and said the Mall of America continues to be a very safe place to go. They say he fell almost 40 feet after a man threw him off the balcony Friday.

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

Aranda, who lives in the Bloomington area, has been banned from the Mall of America before and was convicted of misdemeanors for two incidents in the mall in 2015, according to court records.

"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". He had also swept his hand across a display table at the beauty store Bare Minerals, breaking lip gloss containers and shot glasses, police said. Police learned at that time he had an existing trespass notice prohibiting him from the Mall until July of 2016.
