Grandfather Beaten with Concrete Block, Told ‘Go Back to Your Own Country’

Rodolfo Rodriguez 92 was brutally beaten on the Fourth of July

His family previously told KTLA the grandfather was already 92.

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.

He makes the trip about twice a year, and takes a walk through the neighborhood every day after lunch, Mendoza said. Thinking he might have gone for his daily walk, Mendoza wandered around the Los Angeles neighborhood searching for him.

"That's not true. In the years I have been alive I have never offended anyone", Rodriguez continues, also denying bumping into the girl, as some media outlets reported.

After a passer-by stopped to record the incident on video and call police, four men ran up and began kicking Rodriguez while the child's mother shouted at him, reported KCBS. "I just want to know what was going through her mind".

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

"How can you hurt a 92-year-old man?" said Mendoza, who told CNN that Rodriguez turns 92 this fall. We can't these kind of people like that out in our streets'.

Vida removed his shirt as he ran away in celebration, possibly thinking Croatia were heading through. This from a Russian Federation who feared their campaign might last only three games.

The other suspects were said to be four black men between the ages of 20 and 30. Rodriguez-a permanent resident, per the Washington Post-says he was headed to a Willowbrook park when he passed a woman who "hit me until she was done".

According to one of the witnesses of the attack, Misbel Borjas, the suspects said several racist things to Rodriguez while beating him. "When I tried to videotape her with my cell phone, she threw that same concrete block, tried to hit my auto".

Rodriguez said he doesn't remember when the woman picked up the concrete block, but he remembers being hit repeatedly.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, told ABC7: 'The woman pushed him and dropped him.

"But that's not true", he said, through tears.

His family tells KTLA Rodriguez was left bloodied and unable to walk with head injuries, bruised ribs and a broken cheek bone. He spent five or six hours in the hospital, he said.

The family set up a GoFundMe campaign for his medical costs.
