Family Attorney – Landon remains in critical condition and is ‘beginning long road to recovery’
Emmanuel Aranda, 24, was charged Monday with first-degree attempted premeditated murder in the Friday morning incident. The boy, who fell almost 40 feet, remained in a Minneapolis hospital with head trauma and multiple broken bones.
According to court documents, the victim’s mother said she, a friend, her son, and a friend’s child were standing outside the Rainforest Cafe when Aranda came up very close to their group. The victim’s mother said she asked Aranda if they were in his way and should move. At that point, the suspect picked up the child without warning and threw him off the balcony.

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — The five-year-old boy thrown about 40 feet from a Mall of America balcony Friday, April 12, is still alive and fighting for his life, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said at a press conference at noon Saturday.
“I know there’s been some reports and some concerns about whether or not he is still alive,” Potts said. “He is still receiving care. We just want to acknowledge that this is a horrific situation. The family and this child are in our thoughts and prayers.”
The Mall of America had been open only 17 minutes Friday morning when the screaming started.
On the first floor, lying face up between an escalator and the Michael Kors store, was a 5-year-old boy. He had been thrown from three stories above — by a stranger, police say. There was blood; the boy was not moving. Police later arrested Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda for attempted murder.
“That’s a pretty high fall,” Bloomington Police Chief Jeffrey Potts said at a news conference Saturday, describing the scene and his reaction to it. “Immediately, my thoughts were: How can something like this happen?”

This Somali criminal is from @Ilhan’s district. We need a full-scale investigation into whether or not this violent criminal was radicalized by @IlhanMN’s anti-white, anti-American hate speech. #IStandWithIlhanOmar pic.twitter.com/zfaFQiSAEo

9. So why is everyone calling him Emmanual Aranda? Media not wanting to call him a Somali? What would a liberal do? 🤔

CBS News Report
Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, is being held at the Hennepin County Jail.
Police do not suspect any prior relationship between Aranda and the boy or their families. The suspect had an active warrant for his arrest in connection with an assault case from 2017. In 2015, he was convicted of misdemeanors stemming from two separate incidents at the mall, leading to a ban he would eventually violate, according to WCCO.
While the child, whose identity has been revealed by British publications, has been hospitalized, social media users moved to action by the random attack have donated more than $340,000 in donations from more than 10,000 users.
He was enjoying a day at the Mall of America with his mom and friend on Friday morning when a stranger maliciously grabbed him and threw him over the 3rd floor balcony for no apparent reason. The family doesn’t know him and are completely clueless as to why this monster would target their family with this heinous act of violence.
Records show a man with the same name and birth date was accused of violence linked to two Golden Nugget family restaurants here. Back in 2014, police say he threatened to slit the throat of an employee at the restaurant at Diversey and Elston.
Police say Aranda was using the restaurant’s telephone to check funds on his debit card. A 39-year-old waitress told him she was going to call police if he did not pay his bill. He became enraged and, investigators say, he struck her with the phone.
A male customer tried to intervene, but police say he was hit in the head with a plate. Aranda then pulled out a large knife and chased the male customer around the restaurant threatening to stab him.
Police prepare to charge Aranda for the crime against the child. Meantime, a single rose rests where the boy landed and where crime tape and investigators once worked. According to county records, the 24-year-old does not have an outstanding warrant issued in October 2016 for skipping court in the Golden Nugget case.
