APPLE VALLEY, Calif. ( — A 20-year-old Apple Valley man was arrested after leading deputies on a dangerous high-speed pursuit involving a stolen motorcycle, officials said.

It happened on Wednesday afternoon when Sergeant James Evans observed a blue Honda motorcycle traveling at high-speeds near Central Avenue and State Highway 18. Sgt. Evans determined the motorcycle matched that of a Honda CVR600 recently stolen from an Apple Valley residence.

The rider, identified as Dominic Bonilla, failed to yield during a traffic stop and led deputies on a nearly 10-mile high-speed pursuit.

“Due to the extreme speeds the suspect was traveling, Evans requested assistance from Sheriff’s Aviation, which allowed pursuing deputies to follow in a safe manner,” stated sheriff’s officials in a news release.

Bonilla eventually lost control of the motorcycle and fled on foot through several residential properties.

“At one point, Bonilla entered an occupied family home to avoid arrest. Deputies were able to quickly apprehend him without further incident,” officials said.

According to San Bernardino County booking logs, Bonilla was apprehended in the 15400 block of Commanche Road and was booked into the High Desert Detention Center where he is being held in lieu of a $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in a Victorville courtroom on April 6, 2018.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

Anyone with information about this case can call Deputy Ryan Grisson or Sergeant James Evans at the Apple Valley Police Department (760)240-7400.
