This young boy needs our urgent prayers 🙏 🙏

Police have arrested 24-year-old Emmanual Aranda who is identified as the main suspect in a case involving a man tossing a 5-year-old boy from the third floor at the Mall of America.

The incident took place on Friday.  Minneapolis resident Brian Johnson, who was at the mall when it happened, told the Daily News that he did not witness the child’s fall but did come upon his “motionless” body surrounded by a “pool of blood.”

During the press conference on Friday afternoon, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said the child suffered “significant injuries.” The little boy was taken to the Children’s Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis where Potts said the mother had joined them.

Police also said that there was no link between the suspect and the child or his family, calling it an “isolated incident.”

According to a press release, Aranda was taken into custody at the transit station in the Mall of America and is currently locked up at the Bloomington Police Department.

The Minneapolis native faces charges of attempted murder.

According to CNN, Aranda was banned from the mall in 2015 after being involved in two previous incidents on the property.

Witnesses say they heard the child’s mother screaming after the incident that someone had thrown her child from the balcony.

“SHE WAS SCREAMING, ‘EVERYONE PRAY, EVERYONE PRAY. OH, MY GOD, MY BABY, SOMEONE THREW HIM OVER THE EDGE,’” BRIAN JOHNSON TOLD WCCO.

On Friday evening the Mall of America released the following statement:

“THIS WAS A SENSELESS ACT AND WORDS CANNOT TRULY EXPRESS OUR PROFOUND SHOCK AND SADNESS. OUR IMMEDIATE AND ONLY CONCERN IS FOR THE WELLBEING OF THE FAMILY AND THE CHILD, AS WELL AS FOR ANY INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY HAVE WITNESSED THE INCIDENT. WE HAVE COUNSELING SERVICES AVAILABLE FOR ANYONE WHO MAY NEED ASSISTANCE. WE KNOW THAT THIS IS A CONCERNING EVENT FOR ALL OF US. AS THE BLOOMINGTON POLICE DEPARTMENT CONTINUES TO INVESTIGATE HOW AND WHY THIS ISOLATED INCIDENT HAPPENED, WE WILL PROVIDE OUR FULL COOPERATION.”
