Only later, when Rodriguez's family began wondering why he hadn't returned home, did they learn he suffered two broken ribs and a broken cheekbone.
Rodolfo Rodriguez said that he passed a woman on his daily walk when she allegedly started hitting him with a brick and called on a group of men to join in on the attack, CNNreported. They kicked Rodriguez, who was already crumpled on the ground, and stomped on his head.
The alleged victim, who was visiting his family in the USA from his home in Mexico, spoke to local reporters through his grandson, Erik Mendoza, who served as a translator.
She confirmed that the woman and her fellow attackers made racist comments to Rodriguez.

According to KTLA, 92-year-old Rodolfo Rodriguez was walking after eating dinner on the Fourth of July. "He is doing really bad, has a lot of bruises on his face and a broken cheekbone".
'She took the block of concrete and hit him in his head many times.
Mendoza later told news channel KTLA-TV that he couldn't believe anyone would do that to an elderly man. The witness told the Sacramento Bee that the mother told Rodriguez: 'Go back to your country, why are you here?' "He's 92 years of age".
Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials said the woman allegedly confronted the elderly man because he bumped into the child.
Sheriff's Deputy D'Angelo Robinson told KTLA that police are "concerned" about the crime, but they've not yet determined a motive. "There was what appears to be a four-year-old child there who witnessed the entire thing".
Rodriguez's family set up a GoFundMe account seeking donations and have so far raised more than $29,000. "There's no harm that he meant".
"We just lost our son", she said in Spanish through tears, "and to see him like this was unbearable".
There are slight discrepancies in reporting now, as to whether three or four men joined the African American woman in beating Rodriguez, and as to whether all of them were African American. Police are now looking for a female suspect and three to four males.
