A 5-year-old Woodbury boy who was thrown from the third level at the Mall of America was "continuing to fight" Sunday as donations and prayers for his recovery poured in from around the country.

Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, was chased down by cops in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said there is no relationship between the suspect and the child or the child's family.

Witnesses say a woman at the mall was screaming hysterically after the child was thrown. He said she was screaming, 'Everybody pray, everybody pray. "Oh my God, my baby, someone threw him over the edge".

The man accused of the heinous act - identified as Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, - was later found hiding inside the mall's transit station.

In 2015, Aranda ignored an order to stay away from the mall and was arrested after panhandling and harassing two female diners, a criminal complaint said.

Neither the boy nor the family appeared to know Aranda, according to the police statement. "Thank you again for all of your support, we are truly gracious to be surrounded by a community that reaches out to help those in need", the family friend said. "The child was treated at the scene and then transported by ambulance to the hospital with life threatening injuries".

Noah Hanneman, a family friend who set up the GoFundMe page, said that Landen remains in stable condition, "contrary to the rumors and attention seekers out there stating that he has passed".

"Police officers have to deal with so much, so many kinds of things, but I can tell you that this is the kind of incident that they don't see very often", Potts said.

Police said the child, who fell nearly 40 feet, has significant injuries.

Potts said he expects to turn the case over to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office on Monday for a decision on formal charges. "Bloomington Police is investigating the incident", it said.

According to court documents obtained by CNN affiliate WCCO, Aranda has been arrested on three separate occasions in 2015, one of which resulted in him being banned from the Mall of America for a year.

Court records obtained by PEOPLE show that Aranda pleaded guilty to the charge of first-degree property damage and was sentenced to serve 28 days in prison, pay restitution and undergo anger management training.

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