Rodolfo Rodriguez's family told the ABC affiliate in Los Angeles that he had just finished dinner and was going on his daily walk around the block near his home when he was confronted by a woman walking with a child.
Rodriguez was released from the hospital Thursday.
Rodriguez, who is a legal US resident with a multigenerational American family, was reportedly told to go back to his country during the incident, a witness told CBS Los Angeles. Eventually he was allegedly struck from behind, hit the ground and blacked out, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Borjas added that the female suspect also tried to attack her when she tried to help Rodriguez, using "the same rock" that she had been using on Rodriguez. 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".
Authorities said Rodriguez may have bumped into the girl, according to KTLA.
Mendoza said his grandfather suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and bruises on his face, back and abdomen.
United States jobs growth stronger than expected
Economists had forecast that employers added 195,000 payrolls last month, according to the median estimate compiled by Bloomberg. Workers who haven't gone to college accounted for all of this month's net increase in the labor force and employment.
"We are concerned, especially with the type of crime they committed", Deputy D'Angelo Robinson told KTLA-TV.
"When I take the picture, she said, 'Oh, he tried to touch my girl, '" the woman identified as Catherine told CBS Los Angeles.
Police are searching for the mother and four men seen in the video attacking Rodriguez, KTLA reports. Mendoza told the outlet.
A racist woman battered a 92 year-old Mexican man with a brick while telling him to go back to his own country, it is claimed. "There's no harm that he meant for you to treat him the way you did". "There was what appears to be a 4-year-old child there who witnessed the entire thing". He said. "That's why we're still in shock, as you can see he's badly injured".
Rodriguez's family created a GoFundMe page to raise money for his medical expenses. Though the initial goal for the GoFundMe was $15,000, the campaign has already surpassed $43,000 and is trending on the site.
A witness began recording the incident involving Rodriguez and a woman and four men. "That's why it was very bad", the witness said.
