Child hurt, suspect arrested in Mall of America incident

5-year-old child thrown from third floor at Mall of America suspect captured

Officers responded to the incident at 10:17 a.m. Friday. Aranda's residence was not immediately available.

Bloomington, Police say a suspect is in custody after initial investigation indicates a 5-year-old child was pushed or thrown from the third floor at Mall of America Friday morning.

Witnesses say the boy's mother was screaming and asking others to pray for her son.

A woman who works at a nearby store and who did not want to be identified said she heard loud screams, went outside the store and saw the boy hit the ground.

Hailey said the woman kept screaming, explaining, "She didn't know what to do".

The suspect is a 24-year-old man, who was not named. "As the Bloomington Police Department continues to investigate how and why this isolated incident happened, we will provide our full cooperation".

The boy was taken to a hospital.

He said police don't think there is any relationship between the man and the child or the child's family.

NY orders measles vaccinations in Brooklyn amid outbreak, mayor says
Oxiris Barbot. "Two doses of MMR vaccine are about 97% effective at preventing measles; one dose is about 93% effective". NY has contended with measles outbreaks and the legal challenges that have arisen in efforts to contain them.

Tim Burke from Allina Health confirms to KARE 11 that one victim has been transported to Children's Minnesota in Minneapolis from Mall of America.

A source told WCCO the person who either pushed or threw the boy off the balcony fled the mall and was soon arrested by the Blue Line transit line.

A portion of the mall on the first and third levels was cordoned off as police and the Hennepin County sheriff's office crime lab processed the scene. The melee was caught on YouTube, but police concluded the brawl - the worst case of violence at the mall in more than 15 years - was not organized through social media as initially feared. "Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with that child and his family in hopes that that child is able to recover".

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

According to court records, Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda was arrested on July 4, 2015, after police said he matched the description of a man throwing things off the upper level of the mall to the lower level.

Potts said, emphasizing that police believe this to be an 'isolated incident'. Police said they are unaware of a possible motive.

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