The Somali immigrant who threw a 5-year-old boy off a third floor balcony at the Mall of America has a history of mental illness, according to published reports.

Police identified the man as Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24. He has had several run-ins with mall security in the past.

The boy, identified only as Landen, was at the mall with his mother and another child around 10 a.m. on Friday, April 12, when a total stranger picked him up and threw him over a 3rd floor railing near a Kids Foot Locker store.

Landen plunged nearly 40 feet to the marble floor below. He landed between an escalator and a Michael Kors boutique. He is in critical condition but is expected to survive his extensive injuries. He faces multiple surgeries and long-term rehabilitation.

Police Chief Jeff Potts said Aranda immediately took off running. Officers caught up to him at the mall's transit station and placed him under arrest. Witnesses are credited with assisting police to make the quick arrest.

Potts described the scene upon his arrival at the mall as "gutwrenching." Landen was lying face up on the floor. There was "blood everywhere."

"This was a tough one," Potts said at a news conference on Saturday afternoon. "This was just under a 40-foot fall. That's a pretty high fall. Immediately my thoughts were: how could something like this happen?"

The Mall of America had only been open for 17 minutes when witnesses heard a woman screaming that her child was thrown off the balcony. Witnesses say the woman asked them to pray for her son.

Aranda was previously arrested and banned from the mall for a year due to several incidents, including throwing water at diners and throwing a glass at an employee in a restaurant in 2015.

He had altercations with employees at two restaurants at the mall after he refused to pay his bills.

In a separate incident, Aranda threw objects off a balcony at the same mall in July 2015. He was arrested and charged with misdemeanors including disorderly conduct and damage to property.

Aranda's cases were tried in mental health court with the same results: he was found mentally incompetent to stand trial and was released back on the streets, according to the Bloomington police.

In 2014, a man with the same name was arrested in Chicago after incidents of violence at two Golden Nugget family restaurants, according to CBS Chicago.

Chicago police say the man threatened to slit the throat of an employee of one of the restaurants after he refused to pay his bill.

Aranda is being held without bail in a Minneapolis jail. He is charged with attempted murder.

According to the Citizen Free Press, Aranda is from the same heavily Somali district as Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who made headlines last week when she said, "Some people did something" on September 11, 2001.

The Mall of America is located in Bloomington, Minnesota. It opened in 1992, and has more than 520 stores. The mall is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations with over 40 million visitors annually.

    May God Bless this beautiful boy with total and complete healing. My child is six and this just destroys your heart knowing people like this are free to roam the streets. I hope he is charged with a hate crime too.

  • Mirella

    Why a hate crime?

  • Queen B

    Send this niqqa back to Somalia asap

  • RaginBee

    Why they keep releasing the man?!...put his ass in the mental institution &run some tests...people like this need help.

  • BingBangBoom

    Just tossing other people's kids across railings and sh*t.. Prayers for this poor child.

  • Elevated Soul

    He had enough sense to try to get away though,didn't he?

    This dude is just another Muslim terrorist from Somalia. I guess old girl IIhan Omar will say "this is just something that happened"......

    I pray for the little innocent child who did not deserved to be targeted by that hateful fool.

  • Ms..N

    Security should have spotted this fool on sight and had him escorted off the grounds!! Sad when you don't know what can pop off at a moments notice when your out with your family!!

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Terrible, his mental ass needs to be locked up until the end.

  • Renee26

    Found mentally incompetent...and put back onto the street

  • RealATLPeach36

    He should be flipped over the damn rail. Glad that baby didn’t land on his head.

  • Meme

    Khat!!!!

    I wish the boy a very speedy recovery.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's the problem. The ACLU and Democrats in Congress convinced the Supreme court to shut down all government funded mental institutions. They claimed the civil rights of the mentally ill were violated by keeping them locked up to protect the public. ?

  • Parent

    Sweet Jesus please heal that cute little baby boy. Can't even imagine what his mom was going through in that moment.

    YOU have to be extra cautious these days.

  • Ghost

    ?????? For the boy and his family!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Deport this crazy mofo byke to his homeland asapidy...They probably don't want his crazy asz ither. Prayers goes out to this lil fella and his family

  • Alextra Ballard

    What is this wurld coming to where yew can't even enjoy yasef at a mall.

  • Thingamajig

    Thank goodness the boy isn’t dead. That grown a$$ man needs to be deported and never ever allowed back in the country again.

  • davine puddin

    Poor lil boy

  • Rosemary Horton

    I don't think he is a somali. We do have home grown scumbags here too. Deshawn (middle name) does not sound somali to me. The important thing right now is the child.

  • Pamela

    His eyes are crying out: "I'm crazy, keep away from me". Mental illness is real.

  • Pamela

    I thought that was Reagan in the 80s who cut down funding for mentall health? I might be wrong, but heck, what do I know.

  • Thingamajig

    I was thinking the same thing too, what Somali dude has the middle name is DeShawn?

  • the guest

    GOD PLEASE WATCH OVER THIS BEAUTIFUL BABY BOY!

    I’m in tears that someone would be so evil and hateful to throw a child over a railing at the mall. Again, I keep saying no such thing as overprotective. Can’t let people within 2 feet of your kids because there are psychos out there.

  • the guest

    He needs to be under the jail for life.

  • the guest

    Unreal.

  • Thingamajig

    He don’t look Somali. People from Somalia Ethiopia and Etria all have similar looks. This dude prolly a half breed or convert.

  • Pamela

    Let's talk about an AA Phoenix Arizona man that killed his wife, two daughters and another man cause he suspected the wife of cheating. He then shot two other people before he was apprehended. Thank G*d he spared the life of his youngest 3 yr old daughter. And some people are here screaming for this, clearly mentally unstable man, to be deported to Somalia. How about working hard in your communities to advocate for access and treatment of people such as this guy? Getting him deported will not solve this problem.

    Didn't even read (but dude finna get death)... NEXT. ?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    This is why I say look after your mentally ill family members this guy needed to be on medication and monitored and checking in regularly to insure that he is ok! Punishment prison is not the answer to mental illness PROFESSIONAL HELP IS the system and his family failed this man and as a result he has caused harm to others. That’s all I have to say I’m leaving out this thread because I don’t like the comments I see. When the skin color is different and the victims skin color is different it’s sympathy and empathy. When a white man commits a crime WITHOUT a history of mental illness they dig deep into his past to try and find and excuse or just make up that he has a mental illness or oh he was listening to this the town of music but when it’s a man or woman of color with documented history of mental illness it’s let’s throw them under the jail and throw away the key let’s burn they at the stake let’s hang em at high noon!

  • Ruth

    Really youre as bad as racist white people. Him being Somali is irrelevant. This ignorant rhetoric is as bad as the white man who will criminalize you the same way.

  • Pamela

    Death? The kid wasn't killed and this guy has documented history of mental illness. Let's not rush to wish death of clearly unstable folks.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Mentally ill or not they are about to make an example of you just like that Somali cop who shot and killed that blonde-haired blued Australian chick a couple of years ago.

    Dude needs to put his head between his knees and kiss his a$$ goodbye.

    Oh, I didn't think the child survived. Still, I didn't "wish" death on him. I thought he had killed the child, and, it's not inplausible that a brown man killing a white child would be SEVERELY punished. Also, lets not rush to ignore the fact that even mentally ill folks have been sentenced to death in this country.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    New post ??

  • Pamela

    "Also, lets not rush to ignore the fact that even mentally ill folks have been sentenced to death in this country".
    You are correct. It is rather unfortunate and tragic that this happens, most especially to people of color. I wish this guy had received the mental help that he needed; this could have probably been prevented.

  • Navybeans95

    And they need to march his az right back up in this mall and shove his az clean off this same balcony and televise it....this shit got me hot....goodnight..

    I am AMAZED that this baby boy survived such a high fall.. I hope he goes on to live a beautiful life and hopefully his family doesn’t run thru his money before he can get to it

  • Yup, I said it

    This situation is heartbreaking and the fact he is Somalian is relevant. Do they even bother to do mental health screenings on the people that grant a VISA? We just had a situation in NC where the 18 yr old from the Honduras with a history of mental issues, decapitated his own mother. I wouldn't put it past these other country to unload their mentally ill on the USA. Fidel Castro did it, why wouldn't the other countries?

    “Double it and make it 80.” LMAO.

  • Li-Wright

    That's sad.

  • Li-Wright

    I believe he was a refugee like Omar. Some of them can assimilate and some of them can't. Obviously, he can't assimilate and things just didn't go his way. What about his family? Does he have family in America?

  • Coffee1st

    Bring back the mental institutions!
    __________
    I lived in Milledgeville Ga some years ago... home of Central State Hospital. It was a campus of multiple buildings to serve the mentally ill. Even had their own hospital and nursing home. Government put the brakes on funding and those buildings shut down one by one. Severely mental incapacitated ppl were sent to regular ER's to staff who knew little to nothing about dealing with the mentally ill, the patients at the nursing home were placed in inappropriate facilities where they quickly died and folks who I KNEW were a HUGE danger were cut loose into the community because the building where they were once kept, in order to stabilize, shut down also.
    Sad, sad, sad.
    I suppose we don't all know how it feels to not be able to distinguish fallacy from reality... or hear voices that you can not control... telling you lies and to do treacherous things. But many do and they are slipping through the cracks because of the lack of resources.
    Sad, sad, sad.
    This little boy did not deserve this. What a nightmare.

    There was a huge shutdown of mental health facilities under Reagan. They were never reopened, and have never been funded the same since then, so I'm also not sure, what you aren't even sure of what you're talking about.

    when these 3rd world countries clean out their countries they dump the undesirables on us plain and simple! Dirty diseased, crazy, insane, violent ,drug offenders, rapists, murderers you name it they send them to us and liberals fight like HELL to keep them here so they can get their votes. They either take over (michigan) or they are dumped into poor black and hispanic area where the resources are stretched. This is insane and you will see more of it if you continue to follow the democrat path of insanity! I can assure you this man is muslim and they refuse to stand up to the muslims! Why! if he were a black american he would be in jail.

    It's a bunch of them and they are trying to get to a neighborhood near you. You only see on main stream media the Mexican, Hondurans, and Ecuadorians. Those of you here sticking up for illegals and the Demoncrats-libtards are going to get what you are supporting.

She needs to truly decide if she's cut out for politician because her religion can not play a part in her votes.

  • Yup, I said it

    That's it...??????????
    Not rocket science.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're right. I worked in a huge mental health hospital in Decatur, Georgia in the mid '90s. Reagan wasn't even in office. The staff was very well trained, and police officers routinely dropped off homeless people who displayed mental illness. The police were well trained to recognize people in crisis on the streets. It was a great system - until the Democrats cut funding for mental hospitals. ? The Dems are happy to import mentally ill immigrants and give them welfare, free healthcare and free college tuition.

    But keep on voting them into office. ?

  • T865!

    ? really?? You want malls and public places screening people for access?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I just knew he had a history of mental illness! I pray this child makes a full recovery, and strength for his family!

    But, not surprised because of our almost non-existent mental health system, we closed many state run facilities. If individuals like this man doesn’t have family, they are left to their own capacity!

    Psychotic episodes are dangerous and the public pays the price, when prisons are overloaded with mentally ill inmates!

    20 Illegal Aliens from Congo Being "Monitored for EBOLA" at U.S. Border:
    "A public health official in Laredo, Texas, said 20 Congolese migrants are being monitored for Ebola in shelters in his city and across the Mexican border in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas.
    Shortly after his announcement during a Laredo City Council meeting, the World Health Organization (WHO) considered declaring a “global emergency” in response to a massive outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    “We have 8 Congolese right now in one of our shelters and a dozen in Nuevo Laredo,” Laredo Health Director Dr. Hector Gonzalez told the Laredo City Councilman George Altget during a council meeting on April 4. “For them, my concern was Ebola.” He said that due to the time element, the Congolese migrants were not developing symptoms of Ebola. “But, we’re on alert to check that,” he said."

    "Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of typhus — a disease spread by infected fleas on rats and other animals — in downtown streets. Officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building.
    People in Washington state have been infected with Shigella bacteria, which is spread through feces and causes the diarrheal disease shigellosis, as well as Bartonella quintana, which spreads through body lice and causes trench fever.

    Hepatitis A, also spread primarily through feces, infected more than 1,000 people in Southern California in the past two years. The disease also has erupted in New Mexico, Ohio and Kentucky, primarily among people who are homeless or use drugs. (source)"
    **We're third world now people." Many of you people here support the very people who support illegal immigration. Shame on you! Oh yeah, the little boy died."**

    This is a mentally ill man. What kind of politically motivated fog is your head stuck in?

    That's weird since so many of them have PhDs in Chemistry and Physics and teach at major universities.

    The man has a history of malice at that same mall. The mall knew his record and did nothing. Stay in school, bruh. ?

  • TheOwley

    I SAID WHAT I SAID. A mentally ill man is perfect to do something like this. Maybe she is his new hero, so why not. He should have his home searched. Maybe he has a tribute to his queen with candles and shit in a corner of his house. I'm pissed so best you f*ck off.

    They usually fly to South or Central America then come by same means as Central Americans. I have many friends in the Congolese & Cameroonian communities sending for family members by this method.

    They do and they are hard to come by I would say it’s a shortage of psychologists and psychiatrists and therapists especially black ones

    This story broke my heart and pissed me off at the same time. I'm glad the child survived.

  • De Deplorable Doc

    Where you have Africans, you have Africa.

  • De Deplorable Doc

    Apparently so. Just another crazy Black dude. Nothing to see here. Move along. Meanwhile this near human primate has been allowed to continue his rampage against society. This thing needs to be put in an institution, locked in a padded room in a straight jacket and on a Thorazine drip. A frontal lobotomy would have been an act of mercy for this cretin.

  • gabe

    I fear for this kids future quality of life. The love of my life sustained a severe traumatic brain injury and her quality of life was horrible from that day on. This kids survival may not be something to celebrate but instead lament for the child and the monumental hardship ahead of him to recover.

    Victoria, My Ex, is looking at 18 million dollars of out of pocket cost for rehab and therapy that insurance does not cover when she can't speak, can only move one arm from the elbow down, and has to be tube fed for the rest of her life because of a distracted driver. I truly hope this kid is young enough to heal from all the trauma in a way that he has a good quality of life.

  • Richard_L_Kent

    Wonderful job of guilt-by-association. He's black, he has an 'African-sounding' name of Emmanuel (which of course is also very Christian), the attack happened at the MoA, home of America's favorite nutcase congresswoman (tied for first place).

    But why, precisely, does that make him Somali? WIshing doesn't make it so.

  • Richard_L_Kent

    Aside from the frontal lobotomy bit (which only Kennedys can get away with) your assessment, albeit nasty, is correct. If he did this, then the Court must act.

  • PynkCloudz

    Wow I didn't think of it like that so true so true indeed. We have to All keep this innocent child in our prayers daily.

    Oh yes. When the USA enacted the policy to let any Cuban escaping the regime to stay, Fidel cleaned out all the asylums and prisons and put them on a ship to the USA.

    As an EMT I have to say his chance of having any semblance of a normal life is slim at best. The head trauma from that height alone will probably be severe enough that he will need assistance to do the most basic things for the rest of his life. Its not about praying or hoping for his survival, it is about hoping or praying he has a good enough quality of life in the future. This may sound cold but the truth is sometimes it is better to not live thew a serious trauma and I hope this child does not wind up in that category. Brain Trauma is one of the most under treated conditions in the US. There is only about 7 states that even have a standard of care for the condition, thus making the insurance totally useless after they leave ICU. My Ex was hit by a car at 45 miles an hour on foot and is totally crippled, can not speak, has to be tube fed, and can only move one arm from the elbow down, while facing 18 million dollars worth of out of pocket medical cost for rehab that insurance is not allowed to cover due to the lack of standard of care from the state. I love her more than anything or anyone else in this world, but have to be honest that she would have been better off not surviving the accident than to suffer the way she has since.

  • Malai

    WOW! That's alot to take in..Thank you for sharing..I'm sorry about your ex :( But you're absolutely right..If his quality of life isn't there, then passing on would be better rather than be bedridden and not properly cared for

  • gabe

    I'm glad you understand that because most people do not. It kills me to see Vic work so hard to do the most basic things when she was a little fireball before hand. But as long as she fight, so will I fight for her. The thing that is most heartbreaking is you can see how she works hard to get better but can't get any therapy because bureaucrats and politicians do not care about anything but themselves.

  • Malai

    That’s completely heartbreaking! ??? omg..? and it’s so sad that they don’t understand because they’re currently healthy and not directly effected by the suffering people struggle thru.. people in positions of power rarely empathize
