According to reports, the 92-year-old Rodriguez was taking his daily walk around the block near his Willowbrook home when he was confronted by a woman with a child. The 2017 California report evinced an uptick of more than 17 percent, with anti-Hispanic and anti-Latino crimes soaring over 50 percent past year, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Los Angeles County police are searching for the woman and four men in the video. To make matters worse, four other men made a decision to also attack the old man, kicking him and hurting him.

Misabel Borjas told CNN that she saw the gang hitting him repeatedly.

The woman then picked up a brick and started beating Rodriguez with it.

Erik Mendoza, Rodriguez's grandson, tells KTLA the woman in the video pushed his grandpa to the ground and then started beating him with a brick.

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

According to the witness who jumped out of her vehicle and started filming the beating, the child's mother said, 'Oh, he tried to touch my girl.' with the witness vehemently refuting the mother, telling KCBS, 'I saw everything, this is a lie.

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

Authorities are hunting for several suspects after a 92-year-old grandfather was beaten with a brick on July 4 and told to "go back to your country, ' reports said". "We can't have these kind of people ... out in the streets". "In the years I have been alive I have never offended anyone".

Mendoza told The Washington Post that Rodolfo Rodriguez, a permanent resident of the United States, had been attacked with a brick and taken to the hospital with a broken cheekbone and two broken ribs.

A GoFundMe account set up of for Rodriguez raised more than $30,000 of its $15,000 goal to help the grandfather cover medical costs.

"I'm just overwhelmed how anybody can do this to a human being at all", Mendoza said. Detectives from the sheriff's department interviewed the victim, and they are looking for witnesses to come forward. Anyone with information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact the Sheriff's Department at 323-568-4800.
