(West Fargo, ND) -- A man wanted for several felonies is in custody after evading law enforcement several times in recent days.

The West Fargo Police Department tells WDAY Radio that at approximately 5:32 p.m. Friday, the Fargo-Moorhead Metro Area Street Crimes Unit requested the Department’s assistance in apprehending Daniel Cisse, an 18-year-old male wanted for multiple violent felonies.

Cisse was riding with a juvenile female driver and had already evaded the Fargo Police Department twice before the Street Crimes Unit notified West Fargo Police he had entered West Fargo.

Officers were able to locate the vehicle and attempted to block it near the intersection of 9th Street East and 13th Avenue Rast, but Cisse fled. Within seven blocks, a West Fargo Police officer initiated a specialized pursuit intervention technique maneuver, otherwise known as a PIT maneuver, and disabled the vehicle.

The suspect then fled on foot, but was apprehended by West Fargo Police officers after a foot chase.

Cisse was arrested for Fleeing on Foot and booked into Cass County Jail on his existing warrants, which are Street Gang Crime, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Reckless Endangerment and Terrorizing. The driver was arrested for Felony Fleeing and taken to detention.

Cisse had been the suspect in a story we previously covered for you, involving a shooting in Fargo that led to a high speed chase back in September

The incident successfully ended with no injuries and only minor damages to a squad car.
