Laquisha Jones Photos: Full Story & Must-See Details

A woman has been arrested in connection with a brutal beating of a 92-year-old man in Willowbrook, sheriff's officials said.

Laquisha Jones, 30, of Los Angeles, was arrested Tuesday night near 60th Street and Crenshaw Avenue in the Willowbrook area of Los Angeles, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The weapon has not been located, authorities said. A GoFundMe account that was set up to help cover Rodriguez's medical costs has raised over $250,000.

Rodriguez, who does not speak any English, suffered bruises all over his body, a broken cheekbone and broken ribs. He was out for his daily walk when the woman attacked him for no reason, Rodriguez told CNN. In response, a woman believed to be the girl's mother threw Rodriguez to the ground and started hitting him with her fist.

Crenshaw was booked for battery charges on Tuesday night and his bond was set at $7,500, according to Miami-Dade Corrections. An armless homeless man in Miami , Florida has been charged with stabbing a Chicago tourist with scissors.

"She was yelling at him, 'Go back to your country, ' or 'Go back to Mexico, '" Borjas recalled.

She said she thinks the attack was racially motivated, though the sheriff's department said Wednesday that "this is not a hate-related incident". The witness was able to get a picture of the woman who was walking with a little girl. The man, Rodolfo Rodriguez, said he was out for a walk when he was struck in the head by a concrete block. Police are still investigating whether more suspects were involved. Detectives said they don't have a motive behind the beating and have not found the weapon used in the attack.

Rodriguez was taken to a local hospital for treatment but has since been released to recover from his injuries at home, according to police. Over the last few days, he has been up and walking around, his daughter said.

The elderly man was born in Mexico but is a permanent resident of the United States. Rodriguez was going for a walk in his neighborhood when he encountered the assailant. His grandson, Erik Mendoza, told KCBS-TV that he's confused as to why someone would hurt his grandfather.

Rodriguez's story has gone viral since the attack. "A judge is going to decide what she will pay for what she did". "I just passed her, and she pushed me and she hit me until she was done". Immediately following the attack, authorities said there may have been four men involved in the incident, but they didn't provide any detailed suspect descriptions.

She's being held in lieu of $200,000 bail, reported KABC.
