U.S. boy thrown from mall balcony 'continuing to fight'

5-year-old allegedly thrown off balcony at Mall of America being treated: Police

Police said the 24-year-old man is not known to the child, or the child's family. Potts believes this most recent incident is isolated and said the Mall of America continues to be a very safe place to go.

In a statement Friday afternoon, the mall's management acknowledged the incident. A criminal complaint says in one case, he was suspected of "throwing things off the upper level of the mall to the lower level". Children's Hospital Minneapolis had no information to release.

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.

Friends of the family have created a GoFundMe page to help pay for the boy's medical bills and have nearly raised $700,000.

As to a motive, police say they don't believe the man knew the child or family, Potts said.

Bloomington Police report that a 5-year-old boy remains in critical condition after a 24-year-old man threw the child from a 40-foot balcony resulting in gruesome injuries on Saturday.

Landen Hoffmann is the five-year-old boy who was thrown off a third-floor balcony at Minnesota's Mall of America on Friday.

Potts said he expects to turn the case over to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office on Monday for a decision on formal charges.

The Mall of America is the biggest shopping mall in the United States.

The Mall of America issued a statement on Friday, saying: "This was a senseless act and words can not truly express our profound shock and sadness".

"'Very caring, very family-focused, deeply spiritual, very compassionate, extremely generous of their time, their talent and their resource", he said of the boy's family.

Court records show he'd been banned from the mall in the past and was convicted on misdemeanor charges in two incidents back in 2015.

Aranda lives in the Bloomington area and has had a series of arrests and convictions related to the mall. We have counseling services available for anyone who may need assistance.

Aranda also was accused of walking into a mall store and sweeping his hand across a display table, breaking glasses.

In a separate incident three months later, Aranda reportedly threw ice water and tea at a woman in a mall restaurant when she declined to buy him food, CNN reported. However, the trespassing notice was not in effect at the time of the incident, The AP reported.
