RENO, Nev. -- Donald Trump was rushed off stage by Secret Service agents in the middle of a campaign speech, Saturday in Reno, Nevada.

Trump was in the middle of his stump speech when the incident occurred in the crowd near the front of the stage. Video shows Trump looking into the crowd, his hand over his eyes then Secret Service agents grab him and escort him off stage. Trump ducked his head as he left.

The crowd then surged backward as the Secret Service and police tactical units rushed in to detain a man.

The detained man was then rushed by a throng of police officers, Secret Service agents and SWAT officers armed with assault rifles to a side room.

Several attendees at the rally said they saw a Trump supporter raise up a sign and then a scuffle ensued.

The Secret Service says there was no weapon involved in the commotion.

Further details were not immediately available. A spokesman for the Secret Service did not immediately have information and a message left with the Trump campaign was not immediately returned. A spokesman for the Reno police department directed media inquiries to the Secret Service.

The Republican nominee returned to the stage several minutes later.

"Nobody said it was going to be easy for us, but we will never be stopped. We will never be stopped," Trump told the crowd. "I want to thank the Secret Service. These guys are fantastic."

He then returned to his regular stump speech.

Trump is scheduled to speak later Saturday night at a rally in Denver.

He later issued a statement about the incident.

"I would like to thank the United States Secret Service and the law enforcement resources in Reno and the state of Nevada for their fast and professional response," he said. "I also want to thank the many thousands of people present for their unwavering and unbelievable support. Nothing will stop us -- we will make America great again!"
