Secret Service apprehended an individual after jumping a bike rack near the White House


One week after a 26-year-old California man was arrested for breaching White House grounds, Secret Service have apprehended another individual on Saturday afternoon after jumping a bike rack on Pennsylvania Avenue, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

The Trump spokesperson also applauded the Secret Service for its swift action.

President Trump was not in the White House at the time of the security incident. He and his family are spending the weekend at his Mar-A-Lago residence in Palm Beach, Fl.

The Secret Service did not immediately respond to request for comment.

On Friday, it was revealed that last Saturday's White House intruder, Johnathan Tran, roamed White House grounds for nearly 15 minutes before being subdued by Secret Service agents. His ability to go undetected for such a lengthy period of time highlight potential security vulnerabilities.

The same day, the Secret Service reported that one of its agency-issued laptops had been stolen in New York.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
