Rodriguez told KTLA-TV that the mother began beating him with a brick after pushing him to the ground.

"I'm just overwhelmed how anybody can do this to a human being at all", Mendoza said.

Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arrested 30-year-old Laquisha Jones in the attack late Tuesday and booked her into jail for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.

"The woman pushed him and dropped him. Go back to Mexico".

Borjas, 35, said Rodriguez was hit about five times with the brick and that Jones yelled at him: "Go back to your country".

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.

A motive for the attack remains unknown, the newspaper reported.

NATO Summit first day overshadowed by tensions between allies
But the sweeping nature of this claim inspired us to take another look at one of the president's oft-repeated complaints. My task is to try to minimise the negative impact on NATO", Stoltenberg told a forum in the margins of the summit.

Investigators initially believed Rodriguez may have bumped into a young girl with Jones when she started to assault him.

"I can't walk", Rodriguez said. "I've never asked for bad things to happen".

'What's going to heal me is Jesus Christ.

"They're gonna put it to a good cause, they're not gonna keep it all for themselves and they're thinking about ways to give back to the community", Galvez said. Another showed Rodriguez in his hospital bed with bruises on his nose, mouth and cheek and swollen eyes.

Rodriguez, who does not speak any English, suffered bruises all over his body, a broken cheekbone and broken ribs.

"Who would do this to anybody?" the victim's grandson, Erik Mendoza, told NBC Los Angeles. Rodriguez's family said they're grateful he'll eventually recover from his serious injuries, but they fear someone else may be targeted if those suspects remain on the streets. Mendoza added. "There's no harm that he meant".

The witness said a group of about four men joined in the attack and the assailants fled as law enforcement was being called. We can't let these kind of people like that out in our streets'.

A GoFundMe campaign created for Rodriguez last week had raised almost $300,000 by Wednesday afternoon.
