Woman arrested for allegedly beating 92-yr-old with brick

A 92-year-old man beaten repeatedly in the face with a brick in Los Angeles on Wednesday thanked the passer-by who took video of the aftermath of the attack that may have helped lead to an arrest in the case.

Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arrested 30-year-old Laquisha Jones in the attack late Tuesday and booked her into jail for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.

Rodriguez had a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and bruises on his face, back and abdomen, his family told CNN.

"I'm just overwhelmed how anybody can do this to a human being at all", Mendoza said.

Witnesses and investigators said that one woman and several men attacked Rodriguez with the block of concrete because Rodriguez allegedly bumped into the young girl while walking down the street. The witness said the attacker told Rodriguez, who is a legal US resident, to "go back to your country", KCBS-TV previously reported.

Ms Borjas said when she tried to defend Mr Rodriguez, the woman threatened to hit her with the brick. Without warning, the woman assaulted him, he said, hitting him with a concrete block and enlisting a group of men to join in beating him.

A witness told CNN she saw a woman striking Rodriguez and overheard her saying, "Go back to your country".

She said she thinks the attack was racially motivated, though the sheriff's department said Wednesday that "this is not a hate-related incident". I don't know where her heart is at.

The sheriff's department said it was trying to determine if others were involved in the attack.

His wife, meanwhile, said Rodriguez did plan to go back to his native country this month - but it was to visit the gravesite of their son who had recently died.

Rodriguez, who said he will turn 92 in September, has never been hurt like this, he stated.

Erik Mendoza, Mr Rodriguez's grandson, found his grandfather later that evening, bloodied and bruised on the street and unable to walk. ' He has since been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home.

A GoFundMe account established by Rodriguez's family to raise $15,000 to help pay medical bills had collected more than $250,000 from more than 9,000 donors by Wednesday morning. "What kind of threat does he pose to you, for you to do this to him?"
