The incident happened on Friday at the Arturo Benavides Elementary School.

The school’s principal was the first to notice the man who he says was acting very suspicious.

There are conflicting reports about how close the man actually came to the school.

Zapata District officials say that the man was stopped just outside the school grounds, while Border Patrol agents say the man was apprehended inside the school compound.

When agents arrived at the school, the man resisted apprehension.

He was eventually taken into custody and processed accordingly.

Agents say the man was determined to be from Guatemala.
