WASHINGTON D.C. (CNN) — One man was carrying a weapon; the other had reportedly attempted to slip by security before. New details have emerged about two recent security breaches at the White House.
The man who jumped a fence at the White House late Friday and made it through the North Portico doors was carrying a folding knife in his pants pocket, according to a Secret Service affidavit filed Saturday.

Initially, officers believed Omar Gonzalez, 42, of Copperas Cove, Texas, to be unarmed.
And a man who failed to stop his car at a White House complex entrance on Saturday, after officers asked he do so, had tried to gain entrance a short time before on foot, the New York Times reported, citing Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan.
