Authorities Sunday said all but one of a group of armed men who led deputies on a pursuit from Eastvale to Ontario got away after they ditched their vehicle and fled on foot.

Deputies got a report at around 4:30 a.m. Saturday that there were suspicious men in ski masks on the 5400 block of Homecoming Circle, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

When deputies responded, they spotted the men in a vehicle heading northbound on Hamner Avenue and attempted to pull them over.

However, the vehicle sped off and the suspects allegedly began throwing guns out of the vehicle, said Sgt. Art Mendez.

The pursuit ended in Ontario, where the men fled on foot, according to Mendez.

Despite canvassing the area, deputies only managed to arrest one of the men, Paul Ray Walk, 43, of Upland.

Investigators also allegedly recovered two firearms, one replica firearm and several burglary tools, Mendez said.

Walk was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center on suspicion of being a gang member in possession of a firearm, possession of an unregistered firearm and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. He remained jailed on $10,000 bail.
