White House press secretary Sean Spicer wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the individual “jumped bike rack on Pennsylvania Ave” but did not make it onto White House property.

PALM BEACH, Fla. — A Trump administration spokesman says an individual was apprehended near the White House, a week after an intruder was caught on White House grounds.

Spicer added, “Great response by @SecretService.”
The incident comes about a week after a man breached a five-foot outer perimeter fence and scaled an eight-foot vehicle gate to gain entry to the White House grounds.

The Secret Service did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
