WASHINGTON - Part of the White House was evacuated Friday evening after someone jumped the fence.

The incident occurred after President Barack Obama and his daughters left for Camp David in Maryland, the Associated Press reported. It was the second time in just more than a week that someone has prompted a scare at the executive mansion.

The unidentified 42-year-old man made it just past the front doors before being apprehended. He was detained inside the North Portico doors of the presidential residence. The man was unarmed.

He was transported to a Washington hospital because he complained of chest pain, the AP reported.

Last Thursday, on September 11, the Secret Service apprehended a man who jumped over the North Fence of the White House. Officers drew their firearms and used a service dog as they took the man in custody.
