LOS ANGELES —According to the local reports, The Los Angeles prosecutors said, “A woman, who allegedly beat a 92-year-old man with a brick on the Fourth of July was charged on Thursday with attempted murder”.
Laquisha Jones, aged30, was scheduled to be arraigned on later Thursday afternoon. Prosecutors are asking that her bail is set at $1.125 million. The woman also told Rodriguez to “go back to your country,” Borjas, told the station. The woman later told NBC News that she heard the attacker say, “Go back, go back”.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office told NBC News on Wednesday that the incident did not involve a hate crime.

Rodriguez, a native of Mexico but a legal U.S. resident, had gone out alone for his daily walk, according to his grandson Erik Mendoza, about an hour and a half before he was going to watch fireworks with his family. Borjas had been driving by and wanted to stop and help, she said, but the woman allegedly threatened to hit her car with the brick. She instead called 911 and took a photo of the assailant.
