Police say they took one of the city’s most dangerous suspects off the street Tuesday afternoon after a two-hour standoff in northwest Fresno.
Gabriel Osorio, 25, also known as “Crazy Eyes,” was wanted on charges of auto theft, carjacking and home invasion. On Monday police Chief Jerry Dyer held a news conference to identify the top five most-wanted suspects in Fresno, and Osorio was among them. He was wanted for allegedly holding a knife to a woman’s throat and threatening her in a home-invasion robbery in Fresno last month. He also allegedly carjacked a truck from a man on Friday.
Sgt. Diana Trueba of the Violent Crime Impact Team said Osorio was located at a home in the 4000 block of North Hughes Avenue. Police brought in a negotiator and convinced Osorio to surrender after about two hours.
Police also recovered a firearm believed to have been used in the carjacking, Trueba said.

Osorio was booked into Fresno County Jail and is held on a $202,000 bail.
