(WASHINGTON) -- An alleged fence jumper was apprehended Wednesday outside the White House after he scaled the north fence, a Secret Service spokesman told ABC News.
A K-9 unit caught a man identified as Dominic Adesanya at about 7:16 p.m. on the North Lawn, said Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan. He kicked at one of the dogs, then another dog subdued him.
"Where he landed, the officers swarmed on him," said Philipos Melaku-Bello, a witness.
Adesanya, 23, of Bel Air, Maryland, was then taken to a nearby hospital, said Donovan. Adesanya was later charged with two counts of felony assault on a police officer (K-9), four counts of resisting/unlawful entry, a misdemeanor, and one count of making threats, also a felony.
He was unarmed at the time of his arrest.
The White House was put on lockdown during the incident. Two K-9s were taken to the veterinarian for injuries they sustained in the incident.
