"As a mother of two young boys, I am horrified that this occurred and my heart aches for this family".

"He is the sweetest kindest 5-year-old you will ever meet". Because the family has asked for privacy, authorities are not yet releasing the name of the boy.

Police have said the boy remains in the hospital with serious injuries.

"We don't believe that there is a threat to the public at this point as the suspect has been located", he said, adding that the incident appeared to be isolated.

Potts said he couldn't give an update on the boy's status, but that he's alive and receiving care and that his parents are with him. Potts did not offer details about his condition.

Police are still searching for a motive. Police still do not believe there was any connection between the family and Aranda. "But, as to why he did that, is still something we're looking into and trying to figure out", he said.

A witness told WCCO that the child's mother was heard screaming after the incident.

Potts said on Saturday there were "a lot of witnesses that were helpful" in the incident Friday.

"We're very appreciative of his effort to try to intervene and help out", Potts said.

The family posted about the awful incident on social media, and a GoFundMe was started to raise money for the family during this horrific time of need.

Mall of America security tracked Aranda's location using cameras in the mall, allowing Bloomington police to apprehend him in the mall's transit station.

"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".

Aranda lives in the Bloomington area and has had a series of arrests and convictions related to the mall.

Jail records don't list an attorney for Aranda. In this case, he started fighting with the restaurant's manager, causing frightened diners to leave, according to CNN.

Aranda was chased down inside the mall and was taken into custody.
