Two Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona were assaulted in a pair of unrelated incidents within 24 hours of each other.
Both agents work out of the Tucson sector.
The first attack occurred Thursday evening when a 24-year-old Guatemalan man, who illegally entered the U.S., struck an agent before being taken into custody, Tucson.com reports .
On Friday afternoon, a 22-year-old Phoenix man tried to run down another agent in a vehicle before crashing into the agent’s SUV.
Both men will be prosecuted under federal assault charges.
Neither agent was seriously injured.
