92-year-old man beaten with a brick in Los Angeles

Rodolfo Rodriguez was taking his regular walk around his neighborhood on Independence Day when he was attacked.

"I tried to help him, but the lady said, 'If you come over here I'll hit your auto with the same brick, ' " recounted Borjas, who had attempted to pull over and rescue Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, who doesn't understand English, still has no idea why he was attacked, his grandson, Erik Mendoza, told KCBS.

That's when Rodriguez was reportedly attacked by the toddler's mother on the sidewalk.

"[They said] 'Go back to your country, why are you here?' Bad things", she said, quoting the witness. Authorities say a group of men joined in the attack.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told KTLA-TV that they have started an investigation into the incident.

A racist woman battered a 92 year-old Mexican man with a brick while telling him to go back to his own country, it is claimed. Eventually he was allegedly struck from behind, hit the ground and blacked out, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. "What kind of harm can he mean to anyone?"

Deputy D'Angelo Robinson said that "We are concerned, especially with the type of crime they committed..."

Rodolfo Rodriguez was visiting Los Angeles, Calif. from Mexico on July 4 when he was hit several times in the face with a brick and stomped on, leaving him with two broken ribs, a broken cheekbone and bruising throughout his body, FOX11 reported. Borjas tried to defend the man, but she said that the woman threatened her with a brick. "That's why we're still in shock, as you can see he's badly injured". One witness, Misbel Borjas, said that he was in a auto when he saw the incident.

"There's no words to explain it", adds his grandson, who's launched a GoFundMe page to help pay for his grandfather's medical bills; more than $180,000 has been raised so far.

"How can you hurt a 92-year-old man?" said Mendoza, who told CNN that Rodriguez turns 92 this fall. "We can't have these kind of people like that out in the streets". Though the initial goal for the GoFundMe was $15,000, the campaign has already surpassed $43,000 and is trending on the site.
