Police and Secret Service said a man from the Bronx who is allegedly an illegal immigrant tried to enter Trump Tower to Assassinate Ivanka Trump.
Adames Benitez, 52, was wearing ballistic gear under his shirt when he arrived at the Midtown Trump Tower building before Secret Service noticed he was wearing a bulletproof vest.
Benitez told the agents that he was a U.S. Senator there to talk to Ivanka Trump about her dress line, and that he owned the building, police said.
Secret Service searched the man only to have revealed that Benitez was carrying two throwing knives, a weighted sock and a fake New York State ID card, authorities said.
He was then taken to Weill Cornell Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation, according to Secret Service. He is charged with weapons possession and having a bogus ID. More details as they arrive.
