LOS ANGELES – The FBI says a fugitive charged with abducting and sexually assaulting a 10-year-old Los Angeles girl has been captured in Mexico.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says 30-year-old Tobias Summers was taken into custody by Mexican authorities acting on information from the FBI.
The victim vanished from her home in the Northridge area of Los Angeles on March 27. She was found about 12 hours later and several miles away.
Authorities later arrested 29-year-old Daniel Martinez as a suspected accomplice and revealed that Summers had been spotted in a video recording as he crossed the border into Mexico at Tecate, east of San Diego.
Summers is charged with kidnapping, burglary and nearly three dozen counts of sexual assault.
Martinez has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and burglary.
