A knife-wielding man was arrested outside the White House on Saturday, after he allegedly told a Secret Service officer that he was there to kill President Trump.
According to reports, 25-year-old Roger Hedgpeth approached the officer and said he was there “assassinate” Trump, and that “I have a knife to do it with.”
Police found a 3.5-inch knife in a sheath on the man’s left hip. He also had an empty pistol holster on his right hip.
Officers took Hedgpeth into custody and brought him to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.
It is unclear whether he has an attorney.
