'Landen's recovery is expected to be ongoing for a long time, while it's hard to estimate costs, this will change everything for their family and require much of their time and focus.'

Emmanuel Aranda, 24, was arrested and charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder for Friday's attack, according to Bloomington police.

He appeared in court on Tuesday and his bail was set at $2million.

Aranda allegedly told police that he went to the mall looking for someone to kill as revenge for being rejected by women there for several years.

A criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County on Monday says Landen and his mother were standing outside a restaurant when Aranda came close to them, picked up the child and tossed him over the balcony.

The complaint says Aranda told police he had been coming to the mall for several years seeking to talk to women, but had been rejected and it caused him to lash out.

Man Who Threw Child Off Mall Balcony Was Upset Women Rejected Him: Police

Man Who Threw Child Off Mall Balcony Was Upset Women Rejected Him: Police A man accused of throwing a 5-year-old boy off the third-floor balcony of Minnesota's iconic Mall of America last week told police he was furious that women repeatedly rejected him, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday. Emmanuel Aranda, a 24-year-old man from Minneapolis, has been charged with attempted first-degree murder after confessing to tossing the child, whom he didn’t know, off the nearly 40-foot-high platform, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office announced Monday. The victim, named Landen, was critically hurt in the fall at the Bloomington mall ― the largest retail shopping mall in the U.

Several witnesses claimed to have watched as a man walked up to Landen and his mother outside of a the Rainforest Cafe at the sprawling Mall of America and launched the child over the railing as his mother cried out.

The mother screamed hysterically while a bystander chased Aranda down before the suspect shoved him against a wall.

Aranda kept running until police were able to capture him on the light-rail train outside the mall.

When he was being arrested, the suspect reportedly remained calm and did not question why police had stopped him.

Aranda allegedly told police that he knew what he was planning to do was wrong.

He said he came up with the idea to kill someone one day earlier and was planning to target an adult because 'they usually stand near the balcony', the criminal complaint said.

The suspect's uncle, Francis Aranda, told KSTP that his nephew had displayed violent tendencies since childhood.

'He has a serious mental problem, he was diagnosed as a child,' the relative said.

He added: 'We are going to pray for that baby [Landen] because what happened is so unfortunate, but it's going to bring light to mental illness, I hope he [Aranda] doesn't go to jail, he needs help.'

Bloomington Police confirmed Aranda had been banned from the mall twice before, but the most recent ban had since expired.

' Thank you for showing us there is so much good ': Family of five - year - old boy thrown from Mall of America A New York City public school teacher has been arrested for allegedly molesting an 11- year - old student and sending her sexually explicit text messages for more than two months.

Aranda's criminal record includes two convictions in 2015 for obstruction of the legal process/interfering with a peace officer, as well as convictions for fifth-degree assault, trespassing and damage to property.

Court records show Aranda was arrested on July 4, 2015, after police said he matched the description of a man throwing things off the upper level of the Mall of America to the lower level.

Police say Aranda refused to give his name and resisted arrest during that incident.

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

In October 2015, Aranda was accused of throwing glasses in Twin Cities Grill in the mall.

The complaint says Aranda approached a woman who was waiting for the restaurant to open and asked her to buy him something.

The woman refused, and Aranda allegedly threw a glass of water in her face and a glass of tea that struck her leg.

Aranda was under a trespass notice at the time banning him from the mall until July 4, 2016.

Police said there is also a warrant for Aranda's arrest in Illinois for assault stemming from an incident at a Chicago restaurant when he allegedly threatened to slit a employee's neck.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Aranda has been employed as a janitor for Personnel Plus for the past two years.

It also says he is pursuing a psychology degree at Minneapolis Community and Technical College and expects to graduate in 2022.
