Man accused of harassing Donald Trump’s daughter arrested in Doral

A man accused in New York of harassing the daughter of multimillionaire Donald Trump was arrested in Doral, the city police reported Tuesday.

John Eugene Enabnit, 32, was arrested Sunday and charged with violating a restraining order from a New York court that orders him to stay away from Ivanka Trump, daughter of the renowned entrepreneur, said Richard Blom, the city’s police chief.

Blom said that police officers arrested Enabnit at a Doral hotel Sunday night, shortly before the end of Doral’s famous golf tournament, which is part of the PGA circuit.

The tournament, which gathers world-class golf stars such as Tiger Woods, was held at the Trump Doral Resort & Spa, acquired last year by the multimillionaire for about $150 million.

“Enabnit freely told our detectives that he was at the golf course trying to contact Ivanka Trump,” Blom told El Nuevo Herald.

“After the arrest, we contacted New York district attorney’s office to inform them of the incident because the man had violated a restraining order,” he added.

A Trump spokeswoman did not respond to calls or an email from an El Nuevo Herald reporter sent Tuesday night asking for comments on the arrest.

Ivanka Trump, 31, is a model who, like her mother — the Czech Ivana Trump — is in the jewelry and perfume business. She is also executive vice president of development and acquisitions for The Trump Organization.

Blom showed photographs of Enabnit under arrest and of a driver’s license he got in Arizona in September 2010. Blom said that a detective recognized Enabnit on Saturday, which led the department to begin its investigation.

Enabnit had been arrested in February under charges of harassment during the launching of Ivanka Trump’s perfume line at a department store in New York, the daily New York Post reported.

Enabnit was already under Trump’s security observation. The New York Post reported that Ivanka Trump had had similar incidents before.
