美国特勤人员星期六制服了一个翻过低矮的白宫外层围栏从而接近比较高的白宫围栏的人。当时川普总统正在他于佛罗里达州的别墅度周末。

白宫发言人斯派赛发推文赞扬特勤人员的迅速反应。

8天前,有个加州人翻过了白宫围栏,在白宫院子里待了17分钟后被抓获。

报道说,星期六那个人翻过白宫外围的所谓“自行车架子”之后,两分钟内就被捕了。

他翻过低矮的白宫外层围栏后,警报响起,几十个持枪的警卫跑出来,跑到白宫草坪上,防止入侵。

嫌疑人的动机不详。

Person Apprehended Quickly After Apparent Bid to Breach White House Security

The U.S. Secret Service on Saturday apprehended a person who had jumped over a bicycle rack outside the security perimeter of the White House.

President Donald Trump was not in the executive mansion at the time. He was at his Florida estate, where he had arrived Friday night to spend the weekend.

On Twitter, White House spokesman Sean Spicer applauded the Secret Service for its quick response.

This latest apparent attempt to breach White House security came eight days after a California man climbed over the White House fence and roamed free on the grounds for about 17 minutes.

Reports said Secret Service officers quickly tackled Saturday's intruder and arrested him within two minutes.

Alarm bells at the White House went off after the apparent security breach attempt, prompting dozens of long-gun-armed officers to run out on the lawn to prevent it.

A motive for the suspect's action was not known.
