Secret Service agents reportedly kept a longtime stalker away from Malia Obama where she was working at her Tribeca internship.
The Secret Service has reportedly paid a visit to the home of a man who allegedly stalked Malia Obama, at one stage asking the 18-year-old daughter of former USA president Barack Obama to marry him.
Two Secret Service agents escorted the man outside, although he resurfaced two days later, posing as a blind person with dark sunglasses and a folding walking cane. This time the agents recognized him as someone who had tried to break into the White House multiple times.
The 18-year-old's Secret Service detail stopped Cardosos and realized that he had also been busted barging into the White House several times in the past.
The agents quickly surrounded the stalker, who was dressed in a Rastafarian cap, and interrogated him for almost an hour, while Malia sneaked out of the offices of Weinstein Co, through a side door.
They determined him to be emotionally disturbed and he was taken to an area hospital for a psych evaluation.
The agents reported the man to the Manhattan police department, who has not yet filed charges but is reportedly considering doing so on stalking or harassment counts.
Malia, who is the eldest of the Obama daughters, was reportedly slated to start an internship with film producer Harvey Weinstein after attending the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
Malia Obama still qualifies for Secret Service protection under a recently signed executive order.
