The Secret Service confirmed Friday that an intruder avoided capture for over 16 minutes after breaching the perimeters of the White House grounds last week.

On March 10, according to a Secret Service statement released Friday, an individual jumped the fence on East Executive Avenue near the Treasury Department and onto the grounds. Around 11:22 p.m. the individual scaled multiple fences, ranging from 3 to 8 feet in height, as officials began to attempt to locate and identify the intruder.
