A man jumped over the White House fence on Wednesday night, but this time, the man barely made it onto the lawn before being taken down by two police dogs and quickly detained by Secret Service agents.

“Dog got him,” a Secret Service spokesman said.

The Secret Service identified the man as 32-year-old Dominic Adesanya of Bel Air, Maryland, and said charges against him are pending.

The two dogs with the K-9 unit were taken to a vet for injuries they suffered in the incident.

Wednesday’s incident is the second time someone has tried to jump the fence at the White House in the last month.

In mid-September, a man, whom authorities identified as Omar Gonzalez, made it into the White House before being detained.
