Man arrested at Kennedy Schlossberg home

NEW YORK, May 6 (UPI) -- A Canadian man, who was arrested Sunday after he showed up at the door of the New York City apartment owned by Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, will be arraigned Monday night in Manhattan.

"He may face additional charges when he is arraigned," Barbara Thompson, spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney's office, told United Press International. "We're checking his arrest record and that may impact the charges."


Sidney Waite, 39, of Richmond, British Columbia, was arrested on aggravated harassment charges Sunday night when he appeared at the Schlossberg home claiming to have an appointment.

Schlossberg, who also has a home on Long Island, was not home at the time of the arrest and Waite was unarmed, according to Thompson.

According to prosecutors, Waite has claimed to be a relative of the Kennedy's and has sent letters and packages for the last 10 years asking for financial help to Schlossberg and her uncle, Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.

"The current charge of aggravated harassment is a misdemeanor so Waite would face no jail time if convicted, however, if he has a prior conviction, that could add additional charges against him," Thompson said.


Schlossberg, the daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline, receives protection from the Secret Service and the New York Police Department. She married Edwin Schlossberg in 1986 and they have three children: Rose, Tatiana and John.

She has is an author of books including: "The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis" and "The Right to Privacy," with Ellen Alderman.
