Well-wishers have up to now donated over $330,000 (£252k) to the family of the five-year-old boy who was allegedly thrown from a third-floor balcony in the Mall of America by a complete stranger.

Friends of the family have started a crowdfunding effort to help with medical bills.

As of late Saturday night, the campaign has raised more than $310,000 - surpassing its original goal of $250,000.

The child and suspect did not know each other and investigators are "actively trying to figure out why this occurred", Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts told reporters, according to the Pioneer Press.

The child sustained life-threatening injuries in the incident and was treated by witnesses and emergency services at the scene before being rushed to hospital in a critical condition.

Authorities believe there's no relationship between the suspect and the child or his family.

"A monster of a man threw him from a 3rd floor balcony at the mall", the boy's cousin, April, posted on Instagram, the Daily Mail reported.

Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, who has a history of mental health issues, is being held in the Hennepin County jail on suspicion of attempted murder.

Three months later, Aranda was accused of throwing glasses of water and tea at a woman in a restaurant at the mall for refusing to buy him food, according to the court records. He could be formally charged as early as Monday.

"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 did say that the victim and his family are from the Twin Cities area. Both parents were at his bedside in the hospital, Potts said.

Potts said the Mall of America will often give a no-trespass order to offenders, with a time limit appropriate to the crime.

The 4.2-million-square-foot Mall of America is in Bloomington, about 10 miles south of Minneapolis.

Court records show he'd been banned from the mall in the past and was convicted on misdemeanor charges in two incidents back in 2015.

Police are still investigating what the motive was as well.

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.
