LA man, 92, beaten bloody thanks passer-by after arrest

The 91-year-old man who says he was beaten with a brick in Willowbrook, California, doesn't resent the woman who assaulted him, he told CNN affiliate KABC.

Laquisha Jones, 30, is charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly attacking Rodolfo Rodriguez, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office.

Prosecutors asked that Jones' bail be set at $1.125 million.

Rodriguez, who told CNN he is 91 years old and will turn 92 in September, was visiting from Mexico and was taking an evening walk around the neighborhood on Independence Day. A witness was able to capture the aftermath of the attack on video after she called 911, showing Rodriguez on the ground with blood all over his face.

The felony complaint alleges that "the defendant personally used a deadly and risky weapon, a brick, during the commission of the crime and that she committed great bodily injury upon the victim", according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

He may have bumped into a small girl while walking, witness Misbel Borjas told NBC Los Angeles. The witness said the woman pushed him and struck him in the head with what appeared to be a brick of concrete.

Trumps calls the European Union a foe of the United States
During his trip, Trump made several disparaging comments about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies like Germany and the UK. Donald Tusk , president of the European Council , replied on Twitter using one of Trump's favorite stock phrases.

The attack caused the elderly man to suffer from a broken cheekbone, broken ribs and bruises all over his body, according to KTLA-TV.

The charging document alleges that Jones was previously convicted of making criminal threats, in 2017. "May God forgive her for what she did to me", he said, adding that he wishes God's blessings on the woman as well as himself.

"She was yelling at him, 'Go back to your country, ' or 'Go back to Mexico, '" Borjas recalled. "There's no harm that he meant".

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, Los Angeles County Sheriff's investigators said the crime is not a "hate-related incident".

"Mr. Rodriguez is slowly recovering from this senseless and brutal assault", family attorney Luis Carillo said. "His family is appreciative of the community's outpouring of support and concern about his condition".

A GoFundMe account established by Rodriguez's family to raise $15,000 to help pay medical bills had collected more than $250,000 from more than 9,000 donors by Wednesday morning. "As soon as Mr. Rodriguez and his relatives are ready to share their story, we will make them available to the media".
