Suspects Pummel 92-Year-Old Man with Brick in Southern Los Angeles”

Only later, when Rodriguez's family began wondering why he hadn't returned home, did they learn he suffered two broken ribs and a broken cheekbone. They kicked Rodriguez, who was already crumpled on the ground, and stomped on his head.

Rodriguez travels to the USA yearly from Michoacan, Mexico, to visit his family in Willowbrook, grandson Erik Mendoza told CNN, which reported that the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department was seeking up to five suspects - the woman and three or four men - as of Monday night. A group of young men bounded down the street, accusing Rodriguez of trying to snatch the young girl.

Authorities said Rodriguez may have bumped into the girl, according to KTLA.

Rodolfo Rodriguez, 92, is seen in a Los Angeles hospital after sustaining a broken cheekbone and bruising in a beating on July 4, 2018, by unknown assailants in the Willowbrook neighborhood. She took the block of concrete and hit him in his head many times.

"I heard her saying, go back to your country, go back to Mexico", she told CNN by phone.

"And then when one of the witnesses comes out of her auto and starts screaming at her, four other guys come in and start kicking on him", Mendoza told KTLA. "How can you hurt a 92-year-old man?"

Los Angeles sheriff's investigators have reviewed the video shot by the witness and are seeking the five people who attacked Rodriguez, reported KTLA.

Told Los Angeles sheriff's Deputy D'Angelo Robinson, 'We are concerned, especially with the type of crime they committed'.

"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. He said. "That's why we're still in shock, as you can see he's badly injured".

The eyewitness said she called the police and asked the mother why she attacked the man, and was told by the mother that Rodriguez had tried to touch her daughter. Police are now looking for a female suspect and three to four males.

A person who says he is the man's grandson identified the victim as Rodolfo Rodriguez on a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $220,000 as of Tuesday afternoon.
