The group was holding their meeting when 20-year-old John Rivas arrived with two other women and he began throwing eggs, a statement by Harlingen Police revealed. When the Trump supporters asked him to leave, Rivas “displayed a knife” and then left the area before police arrived. Authorities located Rivas shortly after and tried to arrest him, but the teen apparently resisted for a short period. Authorities say they found a serrated kitchen knife. Police charged Rivas with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of resisting arrest, and one misdemeanor count of disruption of a meeting.
Authorities also arrested Marilyn Lopez, 19, and Millanie X. Ortiz-Ruiz, 18, on misdemeanor disruption of a meeting charges.
A local resident posted on Facebook the moment when Rivas appears to struggle with police. One of the female suspects can be heard threatening to spit on the face of a man who tried to help police during the arrest.
