The U.S. Secret Service detained a lovelorn Brooklyn man for stalking and harassing Malia Obama, daughter of the former President, at the White House and in NY, sources said Wednesday. According to NBC New York, Jair Cardoso showed up at the New York City building where the 18-year-old daughter of the former president is interning three days in a row, from April 10 to April 12.
They also recognized him from trying to break into the White House in the past.
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Malia was being stalked?
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.

Even the DNA report submitted by the Forensic Science Laboratory in Bangalore did not provide any evidence of rape. His wife and complaint in the case, Suja Jones, however, said that she would appeal to the high court.
On April 13, Secret Service agents went to Cardosa's apartment in Brooklyn to interview him. The exchange between the agents and Cardosa led them to believe that the man had "psychiatric issues". She is expected to enroll at Harvard in the fall.
While the casual warm-weather look may be quite a departure from the more staid summer style that both she and sister Sasha sported previous year when their father was still in office, it's only the latest in a line of edgier post-POTUS fashion choices the elder Obama daughter has recently made, including the high-waisted jeans she rocked on her first day of work and the colorful beanies she sported at Sundance.
The Secret Service declined to comment.
