Rodolfo Rodriguez: Full Story of 92-Year-Old Assaulted In Texas

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.

Rodriguez was eventually assisted by a witness who called 911, and the suspects ran away. His grandson Erik Mendoza explained that Rodriguez unintentionally bumped the woman's child when he tried to pass her. He said he apologized and turn to continue his walk when the woman hit him from behind, knocking him to the floor.

A GoFundMe campaign established by Mendoza for his grandfather's medical expenses has already blown way past its $15,000 goal, raising almost $200,000. He is suffering from broken ribs, a broken cheekbone, and bruises all over his body, according to the Gofundme page.

Borjas had been driving by, she said, and wanted to stop, but the woman threatened to hit her auto with the brick.

"I'm just overwhelmed how anybody can do this to a human being at all", Mendoza told KCBS-TV.

Of the injuries and the gruesome nature of the beating, Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy D'Angelo Robinson said: "We are concerned, especially with the type of crime they committed".

One witness told the station she heard the woman say, "Go back to your country, why are you here (other) bad things", to Rodriguez.

"How can you hurt a 92-year-old man?" said Mendoza, who told CNN that Rodriguez turns 92 this fall. "He's 92 years of age".

"I tried to help him, but the lady said, 'If you come over here I'll hit your vehicle with the same brick, ' " recounted Borjas, who had attempted to pull over and rescue Rodriguez.

A neighbor tried to get the group to stop the assault and began recording on her cell phone.

"We just lost our son", she said in Spanish through tears, "and to see him like this was unbearable".

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.

A person who says he is the man's grandson identified the victim as Rodolfo Rodriguez on a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $220,000 as of Tuesday afternoon.
