Authorities have reportedly arrested a woman who was involved in the beating of a 92-year-old man while he was walking around his neighborhood on Independence Day.

Laquisha Jones, of Los Angeles, was booked for assault with a deadly weapon and is being held in lieu of $200,000 bail, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

Jones, who is the girl's mother, then allegedly exploded, shoving Rodriguez to the ground, picking up a brick and hitting him in the face with it.

Only later, when Rodriguez's family began wondering why he hadn't returned home, did they learn he suffered two broken ribs and a broken cheekbone.

"I didn't even bump into her kid", Rodriguez said.

Witnesses and investigators said that one woman and several men attacked Rodriguez with the block of concrete because Rodriguez allegedly bumped into the young girl while walking down the street.

"When I take the picture, she said, 'Oh, he tried to touch my girl, '" the witness said.

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

The sheriff's department said it was trying to determine if others were involved in the attack.

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

"She was yelling at him, 'Go back to your country, ' or 'Go back to Mexico, '" Borjas told the Los Angeles Times.
