Child pushed from third floor of Mall of America, suspect in custody

Potts said it was not yet clear whether the child and his family are from Minnesota.

"The child did suffer significant injuries", said the police chief, according to CNN.

KSTP reported it does not appear the suspect in custody, a 24-year-old male, had a relationship with the child or the child's family. "Oh my God, my baby, someone threw him over the edge, '" Brian Johnson told WCCO.

"At this point we believe this is an isolated incident", the chief said.

Police were called and arrested him without incident after finding him at a bus stop across the street.

Police have confirmed a suspect has been arrested after the child, 5, was chucked from the balcony at the shopping centre in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The man, later identified by police as Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, ran from the scene but was arrested in the mall's transit station.

Detectives are also also working with the mall to determine if there is any surveillance video.

Witnesses said the child landed on the first level and the suspect took off running before he was apprehended by officers inside the mall, police said. Police officers responded to a report of a child falling over a third-floor railing, but soon learned the child had been "pushed or thrown", Potts said. "We're actively trying to figure out why this occurred". The woman refused, and the man allegedly threw a glass of water in her face and a glass of tea that struck her leg. No further information on his condition was available.

The 4.2-million-square-foot Mall of America is in Bloomington, about 10 miles south of Minneapolis. According to the mall's website, it is visited by 40 million people from around the world each year.

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.

He had been banned from Mall of America in the past, and was convicted of misdemeanors in two separate incidents there in 2015.
