A man has been held by the Secret Service after allegedly stalking and proposing to former first daughter Malia Obama.

Also on Tuesday, agents in Malia's secret service detail reported to the New York Police Department that Jair Nilton Cardosa, 30, was harassing her, CBS reports.

Malia's Secret Service agents quickly kicked him out of the building. According to the Daily News, they recognised him as a man who had "repeatedly tried to get into the White House in the past".

Cardoso was first spotted at the building on April 10, where he placed a sign in the window of a Tribeca building and "loudly begged [Obama] to marry him", according to sources.

Only two days later, Cardosa allegedly followed Obama at a different location in the West Village.

According to New York Magazine, Obama is normally accompanied by a considerable amount of security while she resides in New York City reportedly interning for film producer Harvey Weinstein. Cops are mulling whether to file stalking or harassment charges against him. It was after this incident that the Secret Service agents apparently realized that Cardosa was a person who had reportedly attempted to enter the White House while her father was still president.

On April 13, the man was detained by Secret Service agents and interviewed. The teenager, who is taking a gap year before enrolling in her parents' alma mater, Harvard University, wore a daring denim shirtdress to work on a day in which city temperatures finally warmed into the 80s. They took him to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after they determined that he had undisclosed mental problems.
