Police have arrested a woman suspected of a brutal 4 July attack on a 92-year-old Mexican man in his family's Los Angeles neighbourhood. Without warning, the woman assaulted him, he said, hitting him with a concrete block and enlisting a group of men to join in beating him.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says detectives took 30-year-old Laquisha Jones into custody late Tuesday in Los Angeles and booked her into jail for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.
The Los Angeles Sherriff's Department (LASD) said in a statement that they obtained a search warrant for Ms Jones, a Los Angeles resident, and arrested her "without incident".
Police are still searching for the four men seen in the video attacking Rodriguez. Rodriguez has a broken cheekbone and bruises on his face.
Misbel Borjas was driving by when she saw the woman hitting Rodriguez repeatedly in the head with a concrete block, she said. He was out for his daily walk when the woman attacked him for no reason, Rodriguez told CNN. "I'm in so much pain".
'Who would do this to anybody?' Rodriguez's grandson Erik Mendoza asked euphorically, while talking with KCBS.
Mr Rodriguez was walking to a nearby park when the attack occurred. Her booking photo is not being released, authorities said.

Although the law has been in effect for over a decade, a 2017 report from The Columbus Dispatch found that it is seldom enforced. Early Thursday, Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti , tweeted that the arrest "was a setup & politically motivated".

Later Mr Trump and German chancellor Angela Merkel had a face-to-face meeting, where the row continued. But Trump has been more conciliatory behind the scenes, including at a leaders' dinner Wednesday.
The girl's mother, who police later identified as Jones, shoved him to the ground and beat him with a concrete brick, officers said.
Passerby Misbel Borjas told CNN she was nearly hit by a block while attempting to film the attack, and heard a woman say, "go back to your country, go back to Mexico".
Borjas also said that while she was on the phone with 911, multiple men assaulted Rodriguez as he lay on the ground.
"I'm just overwhelmed how anybody can do this to a human being at all", Mr Mendoza told CBS News. "He's 92 years of age. There's no harm that he meant for you to treat him the way you did". Mendoza and the rest of Rodriguez's family started a GoFundMe page to help Rodriguez, and the campaign has already raised over $240,000, exceeding its original goal of $15,000.
Rodriguez was released from the hospital and has been recovering at home with his family.
But LASD told FOX 11 they now have no evidence this was a hate crime, though they continue to investigate.
