A border patrol agent was uninjured after being attacked with rocks thrown over the border fence near San Luis on Monday.

The agent was following two sets of footsteps and had apprehended one person who had illegally entered the U.S. when he was attacked.

Multiple rocks were thrown over the fence as the agent tried to get back to the vehicle.

According to a release, "the agent was able to get back into his vehicle and leave the area but not before his vehicle’s windshield took a direct hit."

The individual who was in custody is being processed.
