Fugitive On Run For 11 Years Busted In NY
A former Connecticut man who was on the lam for over 11 years was caught on Long Island and arraigned Monday for skipping out on his 1998 sentencing for a knife slashing in Norwalk.

Osman Gudiel, 36, was arraigned in Norwalk Superior court on a charge of failing to appear in court and ordered held on $100,000 bail. He pleaded guilty and is slated to go before a judge again on Nov. 9.

Gudiel is accused of slashing his cousin, Elmer Valdes, with a 10-inch kitchen knife 12 years ago. Valdes suffered an 8-inch gash on the back of his hand and said his right hand was so badly injured that he can't use his forefinger and pinkie. He said he also suffered head injuries.

Authorities say Gudiel, was living in Huntington Station on Long Island and was tracked down Saturday in Riverhead.

Guidel was convicted of assault in 1998, but he reportedly did not show up for his sentencing while free on bail. He faces up to 20 years behind bars.

According to court records, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a detainer on Gudiel, who is a native to Guatemala, to figure out if he should be removed from the country.
