LOS ANGELES -- A 30-year-old woman was charged with attempted murder Thursday for allegedly beating a 92-year-old man with a brick last week, CBS Los Angeles reports.

The L.A. County District Attorney's Office says Laquisha Jones, of Los Angeles, has also been charged with elder abuse, infliction of injury.

The felony complaint includes special allegations that the defendant personally used a deadly and dangerous weapon, the brick, during the beating and that she badly injured the victim, identified as Rodolfo Rodriguez.

The charging document alleges that Jones was previously convicted of making criminal threats, in 2017.

Prosecutors said Jones attacked the elderly man with a brick on the evening of July 4.

Afterward, Rodriguez was taken to the hospital for medical treatment and Jones fled the scene, according to authorities.

The suspect, believed to be the girl's mother, allegedly threw Rodriguez to the ground and starting hitting him with her fists, then the brick. »
