"When I take the picture, she said, 'Oh, he tried to touch my girl.' I saw everything, this is a lie".

Rodriguez was taken to the hospital and is recovering from his injuries.

Rodriguez was eventually assisted by a witness who called 911, and the suspects ran away.

"Go back to your country, why are you here?" the girl's mother yelled at the Mexico native, according to a neighbor who snapped a picture of the unhinged woman from her auto.

Rodriguez, who doesn't understand English, still has no idea why he was attacked, his grandson, Erik Mendoza, told KCBS.

Deputy D'Angelo Robinson said that "We are concerned, especially with the type of crime they committed..."

England's squad all train ahead of World Cup semi-final against Croatia
A rubber chicken makes a surprise appearance at England's training session ahead of their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years. England have a clean bill of health for their World Cup semi-final against Croatia after all 23 players trained on Tuesday.

Rodriguez suffered a bloodied and bruised face as well as a broken cheekbone and two broken ribs, reports Fox 11. "There was what appears to be a four-year-old child there who witnessed the entire thing". Though the initial goal for the GoFundMe was $15,000, the campaign has already surpassed $43,000 and is trending on the site.

"He is [doing] very badly, he has many bruises on his face, he has lost his sight in his right eye and he has a broken cheekbone".

"If it wasn't for that lady that helped him, she would've probably killed him", the translator said.

Mendoza later told news channel KTLA-TV that he couldn't believe anyone would do that to an elderly man. People are sending messages of prayer, while others want the old man to know that "not all Americans are like your attackers". "What kind of threat does he pose to you, for you to do this to him?"

A woman told CBS Los Angeles a witness said the attackers also began yelling racial slurs. "She see me in my vehicle and walking to me and she told me, 'Oh, what are you doing?"

Sheriff's officials say they are searching for four or five suspects in the case but have not issued suspect descriptions other than to say one is a woman seen in cellphone video of the incident, and the others are men.
