Several blocks were closed off in a Northwest Fresno neighborhood as they tried to close in on their suspect, 26-year-old Matthew Messick.
Police used K9's to search yards in the area. For a short time, some people were not allowed to leave their homes.
Officers tracked Messick to an apartment where a canine coaxed him to surrender. They claim Messick is a known criminal.
We're told he was spotted near a stolen car, and tried to attack officers as they approached him.
