A woman was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the brutal beating of a 92-year-old Mexican grandfather in Los Angeles.

Rodolfo Rodriguez was walking around his neighborhood on the Fourth of July when his family says he was viciously attacked with a brick by a woman, who police now suspect to be Laquisha Jones, age 30, and four men.

According to the family members, Rodriguez was taking a stroll at around 8pm Pacific when the woman believed he accidentally bumped into a young girl as he was trying to get around her.

Jones, who is the girl’s mother, then allegedly exploded, shoving Rodriguez to the ground, picking up a brick and hitting him in the face with it.

‘I didn’t even bump into her kid,’ Rodriguez told . ‘I just passed her, and she pushed me and she hit me until she was done.’

Jones has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and is currently being held in custody with bond set at $200,000.

 

Rodriguez, who doesn’t speak English and is a legal US resident, said he doesn’t understand why the mob attacked him.

Rodriguez, whose face is still black and blue a week after the attack, hugged Borjas outside his home Wednesday and thanked her for her help.

He told reporters that he doesn’t know why he was attacked and is grateful for the outpouring of community support and well wishes he’s received.

‘I’m just a poor old man; I don’t deserve it,’ he told reporters in Spanish outside his home.

As for Jones, he said she’s in the right hands.

‘I’ll leave it to the law,’ he said in Spanish.

‘I’m not qualified to say she deserves five years or 10 years – that’s not going to heal anything or heal me.

‘What’s going to heal me is Jesus Christ. They’ll give her the punishment she deserves.’

One photo released by his family showed the elderly man with blood dripping down his face. Another showed Rodriguez in his hospital bed with bruises on his nose, mouth and cheek and swollen eyes.

His family said Rodriguez suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and bruises on his face, back and abdomen.
