Suspects sought in beating of 92-year-old man on sidewalk

A brick

The grandfather's name is Rodolfo Rodriguez, and the attack left him in bad shape - two broken ribs, a broken cheekbone, and lots of bruising.

Though the Los Angeles Police Department have yet to clarify whether or not they believe this to be a motivated hate crime, Twitter users have used the incident as a means to cry out against similarly racist acts. Then she called 911.

Erik Mendoza, Rodriguez's grandson, tells KTLA the woman in the video pushed his grandpa to the ground and then started beating him with a brick.

According to the witness who jumped out of her auto and started filming the beating, the child's mother said, 'Oh, he tried to touch my girl.' with the witness vehemently refuting the mother, telling KCBS, 'I saw everything, this is a lie.

At the time of this writing, the GoFundMe for Rodriguez has raised over $39,000 - more than double the $15,000 they originally asked for.

RT oborraez: 92 year old Rodolfo Rodriguez was beaten with a "brick or concrete object than kicked while he was down" according to LASDespanol detectives.

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

Authorities are on the lookout for five suspects-four men and the one woman in the video, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy D'Angelo Robinson. "How can you hurt a 92-year-old man? What kind of threat does he pose to you, for you to do this to him?" "There was what appears to be a four-year-old child there who witnessed the entire thing".

Rodriguez, now recovering from his bed at home, told NBC Los Angeles that he wants his attackers to be punished and to pay his hospital expenses. "She see me in my vehicle and walking to me and she told me, 'Oh, what are you doing?"

Per KTLA, Rodriguez was able to identify his attacker from video footage of the incident, which follows a 52% increase in anti-Hispanic and anti-Latino crimes in California in 2017, reports the Sacramento Bee.

He said the altercation began when he and the female suspect's child collided while they were walking near each other near the intersection of 118th Street and Central Avenue.
