An intruder arrested on Wednesday after climbing a fence at Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s home was released and then arrested again after going back to the presidential candidate’s home the very same day, according to a press release on the Kennedy campaign website.
Kennedy was at home when both of the arrests took place, the release notes.
“Protectors from Gavin de Becker & Associates (GDBA) detected and detained the intruder, who asked to see the candidate. The intruder was turned over to the LAPD,” the press release reads. “After being released from police custody, the man immediately returned to Kennedy’s residence and was arrested again. The candidate was home at the time of both arrests.”
“GDBA had notified the Secret Service about this specific obsessed individual several times in recent months and shared alarming communications he has sent to the candidate,” the press release also noted.
Kennedy had been running in the Democratic presidential primary but announced earlier this month that he will run as an independent candidate.
“Over the last several months, the campaign submitted formal requests for Secret Service protection, yet U.S. Department of Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas has refused to approve the protection,” the press release states.
An October 25 request for Secret Service protection, apparently referring to the individual who had been arrested on Wednesday, stated that “Secret Service has been informed about this man several times in recent months. Secret Service is aware that he has sent hundreds of emails to the candidate, and believes he is being followed by people who intend to kill him. His obsession with RFK Jr. leads him to be at times hostile and angry.”
