    91-year-old man beaten with brick, told 'go back to Mexico'

    By Paul Vercammen, CNN

    Updated 0931 GMT (1731 HKT) July 11, 2018

    )Tears glistened on the black and purple bruises covering 91-year-old Rodolfo Rodriguez's face as he described being attacked by a group of people while going for a walk on the Fourth of July.

    "I can't walk anymore," Rodriguez said in Spanish. "I'm in so much pain."
    He'll be turning 92 in September, Rodriguez said, and he's never been hurt like this before, in a life working the fields with cattle and corn.

    He had traveled from Michoacan, Mexico, to visit his family in Willowbrook, California, a city in Los Angeles County, his grandson Erik Mendoza said.

    He makes the trip about twice a year, and takes a walk through the neighborhood every day after lunch, Mendoza said. "Everyone in the neighborhood knows him already," he said.

    Rodriguez said he was walking to a nearby park on Wednesday when he passed a woman and a little girl. Without warning, the woman assaulted him, he said, hitting him with a concrete block and enlisting a group of men to join in beating him.

    Misbel Borjas was driving by when she saw the woman hitting Rodriguez repeatedly in the head with a concrete block, she said.

    "I heard her saying, go back to your country, go back to Mexico," she told CNN by phone. "When I tried to videotape her with my cell phone, she threw that same concrete block, tried to hit my car."

    Mendoza said his grandfather suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and bruises on his face, back and abdomen. He spent five or six hours in the hospital, he said.

    The people who did this should spend at LEAST ten years in prison.

    Tragic. This woman looks like she can do some serious damage with a brick, too.

    Good. They might want to consider taking her kid away since she obviously can't control her temper.

    Is this a hate crime or a racial crime or just a crime?
