Police in Harlingen, Texas, which is just a few miles from the Mexican border, were called on Friday about a man with a knife who was threatening “a prayer group for President [Donald] Trump.”

‘Prayer Group For President Trump’ Is Accosted 

Witnesses said the group had met on a grass lot to pray for Trump, only to have eggs thrown at them by a man police later identified as 20 year-old John Rivas. When the group asked Rivas to stop attacking them, he pulled out a knife and began to threaten them.

Rivas fled the scene before officers arrived, but they were quickly able to track him down and arrest him, according to the police department. Rivas reportedly resisted arrested by stiffening his body and refusing to put his hands through the handcuffs, but officers were eventually able to take him into custody without injury.

He has since been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after police found a brown serrated kitchen knife that was believed to have been used by him. He was also charged with resisting arrest and disruption of meeting.

Police also arrested two women who were with Rivas, 19-year-old Marilyn Lopez and 18-year-old Miliannie X. Ortiz-Ruiz, and they have also been charged with disruption of meeting. Lopez and Ortiz-Ruiz had joined Rivas in screaming at the group that was praying for Trump.

Rivas Hit With Charges

Rivas was hit with a $30,000 bond for his aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge, which is a second degree felony. He also got a $2,500 bond for resisting arrest and a $500 bond for disruption of a meeting, both misdemeanors.

However, an official with the Cameron County Detention Center told The Blaze that there is no record of Rivas being booked into the facility, and police sources have since said it’s likely he bonded out.

This case undoubtedly will not be getting any coverage from the mainstream media, given that it was Trump supporters who were targeted. This just goes to show once again that supporters of Trump are in more danger of being attacked than ever before these days.
