'Racist' woman 'battered Mexican man, 92, with concrete block'

Authorities search for suspects in brutal beating of 92-year-old man

Mendoza said his grandfather suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and bruises on his face, back and abdomen.

According to the family members, Rodolfo Rodriguez was walking through his neighborhood around 8pm when he accidentally bumped into a young girl as he was trying to get around her, the Sacramento Bee reports. They believe Rodriguez was attacked from behind.

Rodriguez was eventually assisted by a witness who called 911, and the suspects ran away. Borjas tried to defend the man, but she said that the woman threatened her with a brick.

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.

Martinez wrote for the page, "On July 4th at around 7pm, my grandfather Rodolfo Rodriguez whose 92 years of age was going for his daily walk around the block when he was assaulted by and African American lady and five other guys".

"He is doing really bad, has a lot of bruises on his face and a broken cheekbone", Mendoza wrote on the GoFundMe which launched July 6.

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

'Who would do this to anybody?' Mendoza told via KCBS. 'A 92-year-old senior citizen, what can he do to anybody? Police say a number of men joined in the altercation a short time later and inflicted multiple injuries on the elder victim.

'We are concerned, especially with the type of crime they committed, ' Deputy D'Angelo Robinson said.

Rodriguez, who is a legal USA resident with a multigenerational American family, was reportedly told to go back to his country during the incident, a witness told CBS Los Angeles.

Mendoza created a GoFundMe fundraiser for his grandpa to help cover the cost of medical treatment.

The mother of the toddler pushed Rodriguez to the ground and began hitting him with a brick, KTLA-TV reported. Nobody shouldn't even harm him 'cause I wouldn't want to see nobody hurting my father or mother. "She see me in my vehicle and walking to me and she told me, 'Oh, what are you doing?" Police are now looking for a female suspect and three to four males.
