After beating 92-year-old American accused of attempted murder

The 91-year-old man who says he was beaten with a brick in Willowbrook California doesn't resent the woman who assaulted him he told CNN affiliate KABC

California authorities have arrested a 30-year-old woman who allegedly beat a 92-year-old grandfather from Mexico with a brick while demanding he "go back" to his country, PEOPLE confirms.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arrested Laquisha Jones, 30, KABC reported.

Prosecutors are asking that Jones' bail be set at $1.125 million and she faces a maximum sentence of 29 years in prison if convicted as charged.

Rodriguez, a native of Mexico but a legal USA resident, had gone out alone for his daily walk, according to his grandson Erik Mendozza, about an hour and a half before he was going to watch fireworks with his family.

Rodolfo Rodriquez, 91, was on his regular evening walk about 8 p.m. July 4 when he bumped into a young girl on the sidewalk near his home, relatives said.

Rodriguez, whose face is still black and blue a week after the attack, hugged Borjas outside his home Wednesday and thanked her for her help.

Rodriguez said he heard his attacker tell a group of men standing nearby that he had tried to grab her daughter - which he denies - prompting the men to kick him when he was on the ground. She faces charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, infliction of injury. It was on this walk on July 4 that he passed a woman and a little girl. The witness said the assailant struck him several times on the head with a brick.

He suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and countless bruises, his family said.

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, Los Angeles County Sheriff's investigators said the crime is not a "hate-related incident".

The charging document alleges that Jones was previously convicted of making criminal threats, in 2017. "I'm not qualified to say she deserves five years or 10 years - that's not going to heal anything or heal me".

A witness told CNN that the suspect allegedly told Rodriguez, "Go back to your country".

Rodriguez's grandson, Eric Mendoza, told CBS Los Angeles, "I'm just overwhelmed how anybody can do this to a human being at all". "He's [91]. There's no harm that he meant for you to treat him the way you did".

"Mr. Rodriguez is slowly recovering from this senseless and brutal assault", attorney Luis Carillo said.

He told reporters that he doesn't know why he was attacked and is grateful for the outpouring of community support and well wishes he's received.
