Border Patrol Agent Assaulted by Illegal Alien

TUCSON, Ariz. –A 19-year-old Mexican man has been arrested and charged with assaulting a U.S. Federal agent after he attacked a Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent south of Bisbee on Wednesday evening.

While responding to a call of possible illegal alien activity near a residence, an agent attempted to arrest the suspect as he ran from the area. The suspect resisted arrest by fighting with and striking the agent in the head with a rock. The individual briefly absconded after the assault, but with the help of other Border Patrol agents; Air and Marine Operations assets; and night vision technology, the man was quickly apprehended.

The agent was taken to a local hospital for treatment and has since been released.

The Mexican national will be processed for immigration violations and charged with assault on a Federal agent.
