A 5-year-old child suffered life-threatening injuries when, according to witnesses, a man either threw or pushed the child from the third floor of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, police said Friday.
The suspect was chased down inside the mall and was taken into custody.
Potts said it does not appear the suspect, a 24-year-old male, had a relationship with the child or the child's family.
The 4.2-million-square-foot Mall of America is in Bloomington, about 10 miles south of Minneapolis.
A source at the scene tells WCCO that the person who threw, or possibly pushed, the child fled the mall and was apprehended near the light rail station.
Bloomington police Chief Jeffrey Potts said during a news conference that the boy fell almost 40 feet after a man who apparently didn't know the boy or his family threw him off the balcony Friday. But three months later he was accused of returning and throwing a glass at a woman in a mall restaurant.
