Suspects accused of throwing eggs at Trump prayer group arrested in South Texas
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) -Harlingen police have arrested three people accused of throwing eggs and disrupting a group that was praying for President Trump.
Officers say several Trump supporters gathered Saturday afternoon to pray on a grass lot when 20-year-old John Jordan Rivas started throwing eggs at them. When they told him to stop, he allegedly pulled out a knife.
Rivas left before officers arrived, but was quickly found and arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, resisting arrest and disruption of a meeting. Officers also found a brown kitchen knife they believe Rivas used to threaten the group.
Two young women also have been arrested and charged with disruption of a meeting. Police say 19-year-old Marilyn Lopez and 18-year-old Miliannie Ortiz-Ruiz were yelling insults at Trump supporters during the investigation.
