Washington: The US Secret Service nabbed an individual who had attempted to jump a security barrier on the north side of the White House, a media report said.

The agency said in a tweet that someone tried to jump the bike rack barrier along the Pennsylvania Avenue about 8 a.m. on Sunday, Xinhua news agency reported. US President Donald Trump was reportedly inside the White House at that time.

The area was briefly closed to pedestrian traffic, but reopened later. The fence-jumper's identity or motive is not known yet. The racks were put in place following a series of fence jumping incidents outside the White House in recent years.
