Illegal immigrants assaulted two Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents in separate incidents in Arizona on July 14. Neither agent required medical attention after the assaults.
Early on the morning of July 14, an agent monitoring surveillance equipment observed two illegal immigrants running north from the international boundary near San Luis, Arizona. An agent assigned to the Yuma Border Patrol Station arrived on the scene and found one of the migrants hiding in the brush. The agent ordered the migrant in English and Spanish to come out from hiding and lie on the ground, according to information obtained from Yuma Sector Border Patrol officials on Thursday.
The migrant disobeyed commands and jumped up in a fighting stance, officials reported. As the agent attempted to place the man in custody, the migrant elbowed her in the rib cage. Despite the attack, the agent gained physical control of the man and placed him under arrest.
