Laquisha Jones was arrested Tuesday night in the brutal beating of Rodolfo Rodriguez, a 92 year-old man, who was attacked with a brick on the Fourth of July, police say. She was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and her bail was set at $200,000.

During the beating, a young child was standing next to her and three or four male suspects eventually joined her in kicking and beating the elderly man, according to police.

Rodriguez is currently recovering at home with multiple head and body injuries, including a fractured jaw, broken ribs and head wounds. A GoFundMe has been set up by his grandson, Erik Martinez, to cover medical expenses. It has already surpassed its initial goal of $15,000 many times over, with donations continuing to pour in past the $300,000 mark.
