LOS ANGELES (AP) — A 92-year-old man beaten repeatedly in the face with a brick in Los Angeles says he's thankful that a passer-by took video of the aftermath of the attack and tried her best to help him.
Rodolfo Rodriguez was out for a walk when he was beaten the night of July 4 in a tough South Los Angeles neighborhood.
Misbel Borjas said Wednesday that she witnessed the attack and captured a video of Rodriguez as he sat dazed in the grass, his face covered in blood. The video and a photo that Borjas says shows the attacker got widespread attention.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arrested 30-year-old Laquisha Jones in the attack. She was booked for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.
It's unclear if Jones has an attorney.
