Authorities have reportedly arrested a man who is accused of stalking and harassing Malia Obama, the elder of former President Barack Obama’s daughters.
According to The New York Daily News, the U.S. Secret Service detained the 30-year-old Jair Nilton Cardoso after he allegedly stalked Malia Obama, 18, at multiple locations, including attempts to enter the White House in the past.
In one instance, Cardoso reportedly asked Obama to marry him after showing up to an office where she was completing an internship Tribeca.
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.
Sources told the publication that the Secret Service reported Cardoso to the police on Tuesday.
