His apprehension set off a search around the White House grounds and in adjacent areas.

A federal law enforcement official said the man arrested has no prior criminal record and had no previous history with the Secret Service.

A routine scan of the intruder's backpack found it did not contain any hazardous materials, according to the Secret Service's statement.

Both Trump and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly were briefed on the incident.

Romper has reached out to the White House for comment and is awaiting a reply. "I appreciated it. Secret Service did a fantastic job".

The incident occurred at about 11:38 p.m. Friday while President Trump was at the White House, officials told Fox News. "I have an appointment", he said when approached by an officer.

The charges in the case included attempt to murder, assault, trespass, unlawful assembly and rioting with weapons. The workers resorted to violence and set ablaze portions of the Maruti Udyog factory situated in IMT Manesar.

Another man wearing an American flag jumped the fence in November 2015.

The security level was reportedly raised and Mr Trump was informed.

Security footage showed Tran jumping over the Treasury Building's northwest courtyard fence, which is next to the White House security fence at 1500 Pennsylvania Ave.

The Secret Service did not identify the intruder or say what the motive might have been.

The previous year, Omar Gonzales made it through the north portico doors with a knife. He had stashed a small arsenal of weapons in his auto less than one mile away from the White House.
