LOS ANGELES – A man has been charged in connection with the kidnapping of a 10-year-old Los Angeles girl who vanished from her home in the middle of the night and was found abandoned hours later six miles away.
Prosecutors on Wednesday filed one count each of kidnapping and burglary against 29-year-old Daniel Martinez, who was arrested Sunday. He's scheduled to be arraigned later in the day.
The girl was abducted last week and found wandering near a Starbucks. She was barefoot, had bruises and scratches, and wasn't wearing the same clothes she had on when she vanished.
Court records show Martinez has been convicted of various offenses, including burglary and grand theft.
Police are still looking for 30-year-old Tobias Dustin Summers, a transient they identified as a suspect over the weekend.
