After beating 92-year-old American accused of attempted murder

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.

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. She was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, and her bail was set at $200,000.

An older man, Rodolfo Rodriguez (Rodolfo Rodriguez) is restored after the attack at his home in Los Angeles, the incident occurred in the community of WILLOWBROOK.

Rodriguez, a native of Mexico but a legal US resident, had gone out alone for his daily walk, according to his grandson Erik Mendozza, about an hour and a half before he was going to watch fireworks with his family.

Rodriguez was hospitalised for his injuries and is now recovering at home. Rodriguez said he is thankful that Jones was arrested, but he does not harbor resentment toward her or the other men. She faces charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, infliction of injury.

He said he'd gone out for his daily walk when he bumped into a little girl. Following the assault, they said, Rodriguez was taken to the hospital and Jones fled the scene.

He suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs and countless bruises, his family said.

Misbel Borjas was driving by when she saw the woman hitting Rodriguez repeatedly in the head with a concrete brick, she said.

Pilots’ strike achieved nothing, says Ryanair
Forsa had said late Wednesday that talks with Ryanair had ended after seven hours of talks with "very little progress". The airline offered to pay for taxis or public parking for pilots working on Thursday so they could avoid the picket.


The charging document alleges that Jones was previously convicted of making criminal threats in 2017, in an unrelated case. He said he passed the woman and a small child, and then the woman attacked him without provocation.

A lawyer for the Rodriguez family released a statement to CBSLA.

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

Eyewitnesses said that Jones passed the elderly victim as he was walking down the street. "There's no harm that he meant for you to treat him the way you did". While Rodriguez was being assaulted, he could only hear people's voices but couldn't make out what his attackers were saying, he said. The family has been inundated with media requests and is asking for a brief reprieve as they try to get back to a sense of normalcy.
