A man who was allegedly stalking Ivanka Trump was arrested Saturday morning one block from Trump Tower when the Secret Service grabbed him.
The man, Justin Massler, served six months for aggravated harassment of the soon to be first daughter in 2012 as well, TMZ reported.
Massler fled a Nevada mental health facility in November and traveled to New York where his brother, who lives in the city, booked a hotel, according to sources who spoke to TMZ.
We’re told the hotel happened to be just a block away from Trump Tower. Our sources say once Secret Service got wind Massler was in NYC, agents swooped in and arrested him at the hotel on Nov. 29. He was transferred to Bellevue Hospital, and is still there. He hasn’t been booked yet. Massler is still on probation from his harassment sentence.
Ivanka once got a restraining order against Justin, so the Secret Service would be well aware of the potential threat … especially after he fled Nevada.
Massler has stalked people other than Trump in the past and has a restraining order against him from casting director Lenora Claire, according to TMZ.
