Rodriguez's grandson, Eric Mendoza, told CBS Los Angeles that his grandfather was on the sidewalk when he accidentally bumped into a little girl while trying to walk around her.

"I didn't even bump into her kid", Rodriguez told CNN. "I just passed her, and she pushed me and she hit me until she was done". She was being held on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, with bail set at $200,000.

Rodriguez's daughter, Aurelia Rodriguez, said her father recalls the woman screaming at him, but he didn't understand what she was saying because he doesn't speak or understand English.

A woman who witnessed the attack told CNN she heard the woman telling the victim "go back to your country, go back to Mexico". "She took a block of concrete and hit him in his head many times". The woman who witnessed the attack said that was a lie.

Without warning, the woman hit him with a concrete block, he said, and enlisted a group of men to kick him.

Rodriguez, whose face is still black and blue a week after the attack, hugged Borjas outside his home Wednesday and thanked her for her help.

"May God forgive her for what she did to me", he told KABC.

Russia Just Launched the Fastest Cargo Mission Ever to the Space Station
The mission will set a new speed record for space station trips: It's supposed to take less than 4 hours, NASA says. In February, a Progress MS-07 launch was cancelled at the last minute after another attempt in October 2016.

As for Jones, he said she's in the right hands. "I've never asked for bad things to happen". "I'm only going to rely on Jesus Christ's help and I believe the law will bring justice".

"They're gonna put it to a good cause, they're not gonna keep it all for themselves and they're thinking about ways to give back to the community", Galvez said.

Rodriguez, who said he travels about twice a year from his home in Mexico to visit relatives in Willowbrook, suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and bruises on his face, back and abdomen, his family said.

Rodriguez had gone out alone for his daily walk, Mendoza said, about an hour and a half before he was going to watch the holiday fireworks with his family.

An earlier version of this article said Rodolfo Rodriguez was 92. Mendoza added. "There's no harm that he meant".

Four men can also be seen joining the woman in the attack, according to video obtained by one of the witnesses. We can't let these kind of people like that out in our streets'. Rodriguez's family said they're grateful he'll eventually recover from his serious injuries, but they fear someone else may be targeted if those suspects remain on the streets.
