The U.S. Secret Service placed the White House on lockdown Tuesday.

According to the agency, a woman jumped the bike rack along the North Fence Line of Penn Ave. before she was taken into custody.

The President was inside the residence at the time. No injuries were immediately reported.

On March 10, 2017, a man carrying a backpack, later identified as Jonathan Tuan Tran, 26, of Milpitas, California, was arrested after jumping the White House fence, coming within steps of the mansion. Court papers charged Tran with “entering or remaining in restricted grounds while using or carrying a dangerous weapon” and stated that he had two cans of mace in his possession at the time of the incident.
