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

Rodolfo Rodriguez, 92, says he was beaten by a woman with a brick while he was taking his evening walk around the neighborhood on July 4.

A neighbor who witnessed the attack was able to photograph the brick-wielding woman and provide it to investigators. Rodriguez is now hospitalized for his injuries.

Rodriguez is a legal US citizen. Here's what you need to know.

He was confronted by a woman with a child by her side after allegedly bumping into the young girl, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials confirmed. At one point, he says, the woman ran up to a group of men nearby and told them Rodriguez was trying to take her daughter away from her - so the men joined her and started kicking him as he lay bleeding on the sidewalk, Rodriguez said.

Misbel Borjas was driving by when she saw the woman hitting Rodriguez repeatedly in the head with a concrete block, she said.

Rodriguez, a legal USA resident, suffered broken ribs, a battered face, including a broken cheekbone, and bruises all over his body, his family said.
