Wanted parolee high on meth attacks female officer, Fresno police say

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno police say a female officer is recovering after being attacked by a wanted parolee who was high on meth.

The officer first approached Albert Olivarria on Friday near Herndon and Milburn avenues in Northwest Fresno for a purse theft case. Investigators say the 6-foot-tall, 200-pound suspect told her, "This is not going down without you getting hurt." Olivarria is accused of kicking and punching the officer until she managed to use her Taser on him and get him into handcuffs.

The 44-year-old was booked into the Fresno County Jail on multiple felony charges, including assault on a peace officer.
