Rodolfo Rodriguez was taking his regular walk around his neighborhood on Independence Day when he was attacked. The witness told the Sacramento Bee that the mother told Rodriguez: 'Go back to your country, why are you here?' Rodriguez's grandson, Erik Mendoza, told KCBS-TV the 92-year-old does not speak any English, and he is shocked someone would attack an elderly man. At one point, he says, the woman ran up to a group of men nearby and told them Rodriguez was trying to take her daughter away from her - so the men joined her and started kicking him as he lay bleeding on the sidewalk, Rodriguez said.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident.

Misbel Borjas, a neighbor, witnessed the attack from her auto, she told the Los Angeles Times.

Detective Matt Luna said that "as he fell on the ground, he blacked out" after the girl's mother hit him from behind.

Authorities said Rodriguez may have bumped into the girl, according to KTLA.

Rodriguez is now recovering in the hospital with broken ribs, a broken cheek bone and head injuries from the attack. Borjas tried to defend the man, but she said that the woman threatened her with a brick.

Graphic video footage shows Rodrigo Rodriguez looking dazed and bloodied after being attacked while visiting family in LA on July 4. Mendoza told the outlet.

A 91-year-old Mexican man went for a walk in California.

Sheriff's Deputy D'Angelo Robinson told KTLA that police are "concerned" about the crime, but they've not yet determined a motive. "What kind of harm can he mean to anyone?"

The family has started a GoFundMe campaign to help cover Rodriguez's medical costs.

The witness said she took her phone out and got a photo of the woman, who appears to be holding a piece of concrete as her child stands nearby.

There are slight discrepancies in reporting now, as to whether three or four men joined the African American woman in beating Rodriguez, and as to whether all of them were African American. One witness, Misbel Borjas, said that he was in a auto when he saw the incident. There are no current leads on the three or four male suspects who beat Rodriguez.
