Calexico, California -- Border Patrol agents are attacked while trying to make an arrest near the Calexico Station.

According to the Border Patrol, 2 agents were in the process of arresting 3 suspected illegals near the border fence.

During the arrests, 2 other men standing on top of the fence on the Mexican side started throwing large rocks at the agents.

A third agent was able to maneuver his vehicle to provide some cover, but the men continued to throw rocks, seriously damaging the vehicle.

None of the agents were hurt, but the rock throwers escaped back into Mexico.
