Man Accused of Stalking Malia Obama

Malia Obama is lucky to have Secret Service protecting her, after an encounter with an alleged stalker in New York City left her badly shaken and potentially in danger.

Malia Obama out and about in NY.

TheNew York Daily News has reported Jair Nilton Cardoso, 30, visited the 18-year-old former First Daughter twice while she was working internships at two separate locations.

At the time, two Secret Service agents told Cardosa he needed to leave.

A leg-barring Malia was spotted leaving her internship at The Weinstein Company in NY on Tuesday wearing a thigh-grazing, lumberjack-red, plaid shirtdress.

The Secret Service is in the process of obtaining an order of protection against Cardoso, which would ban him from stepping foot on all Weinstein properties, sources said.

While the casual warm-weather look may be quite a departure from the more staid summer style that both she and sister Sasha sported a year ago when their father was still in office, it's only the latest in a line of edgier post-POTUS fashion choices the elder Obama daughter has recently made, including the high-waisted jeans she rocked on her first day of work and the colorful beanies she sported at Sundance.

The New York Daily News reports that on April 11, the man held up a sign "proposing" to Malia outside the window of a New York City office building where the former first daughter is doing an internship. So far, authorities have not determined whether to charge Cardosa with harassment or stalking. She has an interest in film and previously interned for the Halle Berry CBS series Extant as well as the HBO series Girls. She will start at Harvard in September.

They concluded Cardoso suffered from psychiatric issues and escorted him to a Brooklyn hospital for a medical evaluation.
