Fresno County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested 33 year old Alex Carmona of Fresno.

He will be booked into the Fresno County Jail on charges of:  Burglary, assault, negligent discharge of a firearm, child endangerment, evading police and possession of drugs for sale.

Around 8:45 am Thursday, deputies responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon inside a home located near W. Olive and N Blythe Avenues in Fresno.  Deputies learned from the female victim that her ex-boyfriend, Alex Carmona, entered her home without permission and confronted her.  The two got into an argument and Carmona pointed a gun at her and another adult in the house.  Carmona hit the woman in the head with the gun, at which time a round was fired and went through a wall.  The woman’s four year old daughter was very close to the area where the bullet traveled.  Carmona got into a white Toyota Camry and drove away.  The woman dialed 911 and EMS responded to the house to give her medical attention.

Dispatchers gave patrol deputies a description of Carmona’s car.  Around 9:45 am, a deputy spotted the car driving near Chestnut and Lane Avenues in southeast Fresno.  The deputy attempted to make a traffic stop, but Carmona refused to pull over and lead the deputy on a pursuit.  Carmona drove at speeds up to 90 mph on Chestnut.  He drove for approximately one minute and eventually turned west on E. Lamona Ave, where he hit a dead end.  He jumped out of the car while still in gear, allowing it to hit a concrete wall, bounce back and strike a patrol vehicle.  Carmona jumped some fences, which had razor wire running along the top.  Once in the parking lot of a neighboring business located on E. Hedges Ave., assisting deputies took him into custody.  Carmona’s hands and arms suffered serious cuts from the razor wire and deputies provided him with first aid.  EMS personnel arrived and transported him to the hospital.

A search of the car showed it was a rental, not listed under Carmona’s name.  Inside was methamphetamine, marijuana, a scale, pipe, cash and packaging for sales of narcotics. 

Anyone with additional information on the suspect in this case is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (559) 600-3111. You may also contact Valley Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-7867 or www.valleycrimestoppers.org  You will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
