SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A Border Patrol agent was injured after someone threw a rock at his patrol car, according to US Customs and Border Protection.
The agency tweeted out several photos Monday morning that show the agent with a large cut on his face and what appears to be shattered glass in the patrol car.
“Our agents face dangers like this one while maintaining the security of our nation,” the agency said.
The report follows similar incidents along the border.
On New Year’s Eve, more than a dozen migrants were apprehended after approximately 150 tried to climb the border fence and launched rocks at authorities.
In July of 2018, a man was shot by a Border Patrol agent after reportedly knocking him off an ATV with a rock.
