The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a suspect who rammed into a patrol vehicle during a pursuit. 

At least a dozen sheriff’s vehicles are on scene near Pleasant Ave and W. Floradora Ave. 

Officials say the suspect rammed into an officer’s vehicle and took off. The suspect also slammed into a tree. 

The suspect is wanted by his parole agent, for assault with a deadly weapon. Officials say that is why they were trying to make contact with the person in the first place.

A large perimeter has been set up near McKinley and Marks avenues.
