A Guatemalan man was indicted by a grand jury for allegedly assaulting a Border Patrol agent. 

Jorge Oliverio Moran-Can, 42, is accused of ramming his shoulder into an agent’s torso on July 3 in a remote location near New Field, Ariz. 

The agent was tracking a group of suspected undocumented immigrants and found three people hiding near a ledge. Two of the people fled on foot when the agent approached them. 

Moran-Can stayed and was complaint until the agent reached for handcuffs. That’s when Moran-Can allegedly rammed the agent, causing both of them to tumble several yards down a rocky slope. 

After a brief struggle, the agent gained control and arrested the Moran-Can. 

The agent was treated at a local hospital with abrasions and bruising on his left knee and hip. 

Border Patrol handled the investigation.
