A 25-year-old man was arrested outside the White House after he reportedly came to assassinate President Donald Trump.
Roger Hedgpeth, the 25-year-old, is said to have told a secret service officer that he was there to assassinate the president.
The man said, “I am here to assassinate President Donald Trump… I have a knife to do it with.”
The suspect, who is Florida, has apparently been described as an endangered person and a mental health consumer.
The police arrested Roger 1 block away from the White House for threatening to kill the president.
He was carrying a prohibited weapon when he was arrested.
According to the police, Roger has a 3.5-inch knife in a sheath attached to his left hip ad an empty pistol holster on his right hip.
Roger was detained at the north-west corner of the 15th St and Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
