She's been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on $200,000 bail. She reportedly yelled at the man, "Go back to your country".

Rodriguez, who said he will turn 92 in September, has never been hurt like this, he stated. The woman who witnessed the attack said that was a lie. Soon after, a group of men attacked Rodriguez, he said.
