A 30-year-old woman was charged with attempted murder Thursday for allegedly beating a 92-year-old man with a brick last week, CBS Los Angeles reports.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office says Laquisha Jones will be arraigned Thursday. She also shouted "Go back to your country", a resident who witnessed the incident told a local CBS affiliate.

The charge stems from an incident in which Rodolfo Rodriguez was reportedly assaulted by Jones while he was taking a routine walk around his neighborhood on July 4. Woman arrested in brutal brick beating of 92-year-old man in Willowbrook The felony complaint includes special allegations that Jones personally used a deadly and risky weapon, a brick, during the commission of the crime and that she committed great bodily injury upon the victim, the DA's office said in a statement.

Jones was convicted of making criminal threats in 2017, according to the DA's office. A witness, who recorded the aftermath of the attack, said Rodriguez was walking on the sidewalk and passed a woman, who got angry.

"May God forgive her for what she did to me", Rodriguez told KABC. Then about three of them also started beating the older man, she 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. Sheriff's officials are investigating their potential role in the assault. Investigators said so far that has not been substantiated. Rodriguez added that he is grateful for the support he's received from the community and thanked the people who have helped him during this hard time.

"When I take the picture, she said, 'Oh, he tried to touch my girl.' I saw everything, this is a lie". "I'm not qualified to say she deserves five years or 10 years - that's not going to heal anything or heal me". A GoFundMe page, with a goal of $15,000, was created July 6 to help pay for Rodriguez's medical treatment. He was visiting family in Los Angeles when the attack occurred, his grandson said. He was badly battered, and the bruises and gashes are still visible.
