On Thursday afternoon, Sixto Benitez, a 52-year-old man from the Bronx, was arrested and charged with possession of a forged instrument and criminal possession of a weapon, an NYPD spokesperson said on Friday. At approximately 4 pm on Thursday, Benitez approached a Secret Service checkpoint as he attempted to enter Trump Tower in Manhattan. Benitez told security that he was a US Senator and a Secret Service agent. He then proceeded to tell agents that he wanted to talk to Ivanka Trump about her dress line, and that he owned Trump Tower. He was wearing a protective vest under his shirt and was found to be in possession of two knives and a sock with a heavy metal object inside it. He was subsequently arrested and charged, after which he was hospitalized for an evaluation as he had mental health issues.
