Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said an intruder climbed the fence at his home and was arrested.

He said the intruder returned to his home and was arrested a second time.

“Yesterday an intruder climbed the fence at my home and was arrested. After being released from police custody later in the day, he immediately returned to my home and was arrested again,” RFK Jr. said.

“DHS Secretary Mayorkas has twice refused to grant Secret Service protection for our campaign. For full transparency, here are all the details, including the 3rd formal submission letter to Sec. Mayorkas,” he added.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s campaign issued this press release:


On Wednesday an intruder was arrested after climbing a fence at the residence of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

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.

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.

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. Every presidential administration for 55 years has afforded early protection to candidates who requested it. The Biden administration is the sole outlier.

ABC 7 Eyewitness News reports:

The initial incident was reported about 9:30 a.m. after the intruder climbed a fence and asked to see the candidate, according to the campaign. The man was detained by employees of Gavin de Becker and Associates, a private security company.

Los Angeles police officers responded to the residence and took the suspect into custody, the LAPD told ABC News, adding that he was then transported to the West L.A. station, cited and released.

“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,” the Kennedy campaign said in a statement.

Kennedy’s wife, the actress Cheryl Hines, was also home at the time of the incidents. The second intrusion occurred about 5:45 p.m. despite a restraining order against the suspect, authorities said.

No injuries were reported.

This isn’t the first safety incident faced by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his campaign.

“An armed man accused of impersonating a member of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s security detail was detained and arrested at a California event,” 100 Percent Fed Up reported last month.

“I’m very grateful that alert and fast-acting protectors from Gavin de Becker and Associates (GDBA) spotted and detained an armed man who attempted to approach me at my Hispanic Heritage speech at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles tonight,” RFK Jr. said.

“The man, wearing two shoulder holsters with loaded pistols and spare ammunition magazines was carrying a U.S. Marshal badge on a lanyard and beltclip federal ID. He identified himself as a member of my security detail. Armed GDBA team members moved quickly to isolate and detain the man until LAPD arrived to make the arrest. I’m also grateful to LAPD for its rapid response.”

“I’m still entertaining a hope that President Biden will allow me Secret Service protection. I am the first presidential candidate in history to whom the White House has denied a request for protection,” he added.

RFK Jr. previously said on Joe Rogan’s podcast that he feared he could face a similar fate to his uncle, former President John F. Kennedy, if he were to win the Presidency.
