Secret Service agents accused a man for allegedly stalking and disturbing Malia Obama on multiple occasions.

The ordeal with Cardoso began when the suspect reportedly followed the former first daughter to another one of her internships, located in Tribeca, New York, and went up to the fourth floor before holding a sign up against a window and loudly asking the 18-year-old to marry him, witnesses said.

Malia's Secret Service agents quickly kicked him out of the building.

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.

According to the Daily News, Obama White House staffers had expressed frustration with the way paparazzi photographed the eldest Obama daughter when she was out in public because they feared it could fuel the sort of behavior Cardoso exhibited.

HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Malia was being stalked?

On April 13, Secret Service agents interviewed Cardoso at his apartment and took him to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. No charges have been filed, but New York City police are considering stalking and harassment charges. They told him to go away and leave her alone, sources said. The teenager, who is taking a gap year before enrolling in her parents' alma mater, Harvard University, wore a daring denim shirtdress to work on a day in which city temperatures finally warmed into the 80s.

The eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama is now spending the spring interning at the film production company.

The Secret Service declined to comment.
