U.S. Sen. Rand Paul was mowing his grass outside his Kentucky home when he came under a brutal attack by a neighbor Friday.

The attack left the Republican with five broken ribs, lung contusions and injuries to his face. 

His neighbor, Rene Boucher, 59, was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault causing minor injury and has since been released on bond, Reuters reports

“Senator Paul has five rib fractures including three displaced fractures. This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force,” Doug Stafford, a senior adviser to Paul, said in a statement, according to multiple media reports.

“It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying,” the reports quoted Stafford as saying. He added that the senator’s type of injury could lead to life-threatening injuries.

Authorities said it wasn’t immediately clear what prompted Paul’s neighbor to enter the senator’s property in a gated community near Bowling Green and tackle him from behind.

The FBI is on the hunt for a man accused of making “illicit sexual contact” with a girl during Monday’s wreathing-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

The incident happened around 11 a.m. while the man and girl were standing in a crowd during the ceremony.

The FBI released a photo of the suspect and is asking anyone with information about the man’s identity to call the bureau’s Washington Field Office at 202-278-2000.

An undocumented immigrant assaulted and nearly stabbed a Border Patrol agent near Tucson on Tuesday night.

The attack happened as the Border and Air and Marine Operations were responding to a report of roughly 10 migrants walking in the desert, the Arizona Republic reports.

Using a helicopter as a guide, agents located the group.

When an agent tried to stop a fleeing migrant, he was nearly stabbed when the man pulled out a knife. The agent’s handheld radio was stabbed, potentially saving him.

The co-pilot of a helicopter helped subdue and arrest the man.

The agent wasn’t seriously injured.

Mark Morgan, the Border Patrol’s new chief, said his agents are “the most assaulted law enforcement personnel in the country.”

“I’ve learned that the United States Border Patrol agents are among the most assaulted law enforcement personnel in the country,” Mark Morgan, the new chief of the Border Patrol, told a House Homeland Security subcommittee panel on Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reports. “There have been 7,542 assaults against agents since 2006 and 30 agents have died in the line of duty since 2003.” 

Morgan also said agents are distracted from their mission to keep the country safe because of unaccompanied minors crossing the border.

“What we’re being asked to do right now, I think you could phrase it a little bit, is a humanitarian mission,” Morgan said.

A Honduran man punched a Border Patrol agent in the face, but that wasn’t enough to stop the agent from capturing him.

The FBI said Ssahil Jose Lainez-Fugon was hiding under a bush near the Rio Grande in the La Paloma Wildlife Refuge in Texas.

The agent saw the suspect’s legs poking out of the bush.

Lainez started running, but the agent was able to grab his short. That’s when authorities said Lainez punched the agent in the jaw, cutting the inside of his mouth.

Nevertheless, the agent was still able to capture and apprehend the man.

Lainey has been charged with assaulting a federal officer and is in the custody of U.S. Marshals.
