A New York man was detained by the U.S. Secret Service last week for allegedly stalking and harassing former first daughter Malia Obama.
According to The New York Daily News, the U.S. Secret Service detained Jair Nilton Cardoso, 30, after he allegedly stalked Malia Obama, 18, at multiple locations, including attempts to enter the White House in the past.
Sources told the The New York Daily News that the Secret Service also stopped Cardoso when he tried to follow Obama out of a building in the West Village, where she had another internship.
The agents reportedly recognized the man and told him to leave the former first daughter alone.
According to the report, the Secret Service then went to Cardoso’s Brooklyn apartment the following day in order to interview him.
They concluded Cardoso suffered from psychiatric issues and escorted him to a Brooklyn hospital for a medical evaluation.
