A woman has been arrested for attempting to break into Trump's White House
Marci Anderson Wahl first tried to sneak into President Donald Trump’s official residence last Tuesday.
However, she became “entangled in the security features affixed at the top” of the south fence, according to a statement from the US Secret Service.
Wahl was subsequently arrested for unlawful entry and was issued with a “stay away” order.
But on Sunday morning around 7.15am GMT (2.15 am local time), Wahl decided to scale a different fence in a bid to get inside.
According to police, Wahl attempted to climb the south eastern corner of the White House’s Treasury building.

An alarm was activated and Secret Service Uniformed division officers “immediately responded” to the breach.
At the time of arrest, Wahl was said to be in possession of a backpack, sleeping bag and other items. No hazardous materials or weapons were found, according to reports.
After her initial arrest, Wahl reportedly told police she wanted “speak with President Donald Trump”.
Her attempts come just weeks after Jonathan Tran, 26, from Milpitas, California, entered the White House grounds without permission.
Tran scaled the White House fence and was on the grounds for 16 minutes before he was detained.
