A Border Patrol agent pursuing two men suspected of entering the country illegally was assaulted by one of them carrying a 45-inch wooden stake in the San Diego community of Otay Mesa, the U-T San Diego reports.
Agents spotted two men leap out of bushes and run. While one surrendered, the suspect with the wooden stake did not.
As one of the agents caught up with the fleeing suspect, a fight ensued. The man kicked the agent in the face and swung at him with fists.
Other agents caught up with the suspect and arrested him.
