Wednesday night a 23-year-old man from Maryland tried to break inside the White House after climbing the White House fence. The man was apprehended by the Secret Service agents right on the North Lawn. The agents were helped by their dogs in catching the intruder.
This is not the first incident when someone tries to get inside the White House that that happens recently. About a month ago a man carrying a knife jumped over the White House fence and started running on the lawn, with the purpose of getting inside the mansion. The man succeeded to get inside but was caught by the security agents right in the East Room of the House. This incident happened on September 19 and it raised a lot of questions regarding the efficiency of the President’s Secret Service security. After this incident, director of the security agency, Julia Pierson resigned from her position after 18 months of being on the job.
The latest incident when a man tried to break inside the White House happened at around 7 p.m. The perpetrator identified as Dominic Adesanya, climbed over the fence but couldn’t get too far before the security took him down. The agents are always patrolling the grounds of the White House so any attempt of getting inside is useless. President Obama was inside the White House when the incident happened. The perpetrator was not armed when he was caught by the security and the charges are pending.
During the incident, two security dogs were injured and had to be taken to the veterinarian. There is footage recorded by the news camera showing a man wearing white shorts on the White House lawn. The man was caught on camera punching and kicking the dogs that were released to bring him down. The man was also taken to a hospital because he was wounded by the dogs.
The man who tried to break inside the White House is being held into custody for a trial. We will keep you updated if anything new is announced.
