Rodolfo Rodriguez was taking his regular walk around his neighborhood on Independence Day when he was attacked. Rodriguez is now hospitalized for his injuries.

"Go back to your country, why are you here, bad things", a resident who witnessed the incident told a local CBS affiliate.

He had traveled from Michoacan, Mexico, to visit his family in Willowbrook, an unincorporated area in Los Angeles County, his grandson Erik Mendoza said.

According to Mendoza, the woman in the video pushes him to the floor before grabbing a brick and beating him with it.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is still investigating.

Misbel Borjas, Rodriguez's neighbor, said she was the witness involved. However, she said the group soon turned on her. Rodriguez said he blacked out during the violence. "Oh my god. It's too offensive", she said.

The attack was so brutal that Rodriguez was unable to walk after the suspects ran away, and he now suffers a myriad of injuries, including bruised ribs, a broken cheekbone, and head and neck injuries.

Los Angeles authorities are searching for several suspects in the beating of a 92-year-old man out for a walk on the Fourth of July. Mendoza asked. "That's why we're still in shock, as you can see he's badly injured".

According to the eyewitness, the man was walking down the sidewalk and he passed the woman.

"We are concerned, especially with the type of crime they committed", Los Angeles sheriff's investigator Deputy D'Angelo Robinson told KTLA. One witness, Misbel Borjas, said that he was in a auto when he saw the incident.

Rodriguez's family created a GoFundMe page to raise money for his medical expenses.

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 no current leads on the three or four male suspects who beat Rodriguez.
