15 April, 2019, 04:41
WCCO-TV in Minnesota reported a witness heard the boy's mother shouting "Everybody pray, everybody pray".
"This is a horrific situation", Potts said.
Authorities have not yet identified the boy or provided an update on his condition, citing the family's request for privacy.
Bloomington police Chief Jeffrey Potts said during a news conference that the boy fell almost 40 feet after a man who apparently didn't know the boy or his family threw him off the balcony Friday. "His soul is soft and gentle and instantly brings a smile to everybody he meets", the family friend described Landen on the GoFundMe page.
The boy, Landen Hoffmann of Woodbury, Minnesota, was tossed from the balcony on Friday and police have arrested the man they believe is responsible. He said she was screaming, "Everybody pray, everybody pray".
In the press conference about the incident, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said Landen is "receiving care".
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.
Potts commended the Mall of America for quickly locating the suspect.
He was arrested and has since been charged with attempted homicide. Potts believes this most recent incident is isolated and said the Mall of America continues to be a very safe place to go.
On Friday, the boy "was enjoying a day at the Mall of America with his mom and friend ... when a stranger maliciously grabbed him and threw him over the third-floor balcony for no apparent reason". The child had fallen from the third level to the first.
Witnesses told police that the alleged attacker "took off running immediately after the incident".
Then in October 2015, Aranda returned to the Mall of America again - in violation of his no-trespass order - and harassed and assaulted a woman inside a restaurant there, records show.
'We have counseling services available for anyone who may need assistance. Police say Aranda refused to give his name and resisted arrest.
Aranda also was accused of walking into a mall store and sweeping his hand across a display table, breaking glasses. The complaint says Aranda approached a woman who was waiting for the restaurant to open and asked her to buy him something.
A witness Friday at the mall told WCCO that the child's mother was screaming that someone had thrown her child from the balcony. The 24-year-old is being held at the Bloomington Police Department and is being charged with one count of attempted homicide.
