NEW YORK (AP) -- Police say a New Jersey man has been arrested after scaling a fence surrounding New York City's Kennedy Airport.

Authorities say William Deene (DEEN') was charged with criminal trespass after an airport worker noticed him scaling the fence around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Officials say the 22-year-old man from Perth Amboy, New Jersey, also set off a perimeter alarm in the fenced area separating the public from airport property.

The two fences are about 1 1/2 feet apart on the airport's west side near an expressway. The incident interrupted no flights, and isn't clear why he would have scaled the fence.

It wasn't immediately known whether Deene had an attorney.
