The 5-year-old boy is still being treated for critical injuries sustained in a fall after he was thrown from the third floor of the mall Friday morning.

The 4.2-million-square-foot Mall of America is in Bloomington, about 10 miles south of Minneapolis.

A witness Friday at the mall told WCCO that the child's mother was screaming 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.

Neither the boy nor the family appeared to know Aranda, according to the police statement.

"'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.

According to Potts, witnesses told police the person suspected of pushing or throwing the child 'took off running immediately after the incident'.

As to a motive, police say they don't believe the man knew the child or family, Potts said. Potts said he expects to submit the case to Hennepin County prosecutors for charges by noon on Monday. A witness tried to stop him, and officers soon after apprehended and arrested the Minneapolis man in the mall's transit station.
