"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".

In October 2015, Aranda was accused of throwing glasses in Twin Cities Grill in the mall.

On Saturday, Potts declined to give specifics about Aranda's mental health but said some of the previous cases had been handled in mental health courts.

Authorities described the injuries as life-threatening but he is in stable condition at Children's Hospital Minneapolis.

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.

The family posted about the bad incident on social media, and a GoFundMe was started to raise money for the family during this horrific time of need.

Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley ejected from Game 1
Quickly, an official jumped in the middle and gave both players a technical foul before ejecting them from the game. With 4:41 to play, the two got tangled up, with Durant pushing Beverley into the scorer's table.


The boy, Landen Hoffmann of Woodbury, Minnesota, was tossed from the balcony on Friday and police have arrested the man they believe is responsible.

The 5-year-old who was thrown from the third floor of the Mall of America in Minnesota continues to be treated for life-threatening injuries as details emerge about the attack, police said. He could be formally charged as early as Monday.

The story of what happened in the Mall of America on Friday is horrifying.

Aranda lives in the Bloomington area and has had a series of arrests and convictions related to the mall.

"We think this is a very isolated event", Potts said.

Court records obtained by PEOPLE show that Aranda was convicted of fifth-degree assault and interfering with an officer of the peace, and was ordered not to return to the property for one year.

Tracking showers and storms for the weekend
Clouds will be on the increase as temperatures will go from near 70 into the lower 60s by early Sunday morning. Our main concerns at this time are damaging winds, however large hail, and an isolated tornado are possible.


The Mall of America had been open only 17 minutes Friday morning when the screaming started.

"This was a senseless act and words can not truly express our profound shock and sadness".

An employee from the Bare Minerals store went on to tell police that Aranda had "walked into the store, and without saying anything, swept his hand across a display table, knocking off and breaking two containers of lip gloss valued at $18.00 each and three shot glasses valued at $2.00 each", the outlet reported.

Police confirmed that there is video of the incident but said it will not be released until the investigation is complete.

The complaint says Aranda approached a woman who was waiting for the restaurant to open and asked her to buy him something. Jail records don't list an attorney for him.
