Mall of America sets weekend curfew for juveniles

Mall of America officials are re-emphasizing their curfew policy, after a 10-year-old boy was left at the park for a day by his mother.

The mall's Parental Escort Policy has been in effect since 1996, which states that any youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years of age after 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

When the policy was put into effect, the number of juvenile incidents at the mall went from 300 to 2, mall officials said.
