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.

A lovesick Brooklyn man was detained for stalking former First Daughter Malia Obama in Washington D.C. and the Big Apple in an attempt to get her to marry him, sources said Wednesday.

On Thursday, members of Malia Obama's Secret Service detail visited New York's First Precinct station house to report 30-year-old Jair Nilton Cardoso, who's been following the 18-year-old around the city.

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

In one instance, Cardoso reportedly asked Obama to marry him after showing up to an office where she was completing an internship Tribeca.

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.

As previously reported by The Root, Malia, who is set to begin Harvard University this fall, began an internship with the Weinstein Company in February after vacationing with her family in Palm Springs, Calif.

Authorities are determining if stalking or harassment charges against Cardoso should be filed. In 2015, she interned on Lena Dunham's HBO series, Girls, MSN reported. It was after this incident that the Secret Service agents apparently realized that Cardosa was a person who had reportedly attempted to enter the White House while her father was still president. Sources said he was deemed emotionally unstable and was taken to Kings County hospital for a psych evaluation.
