Authorities ask Baja citizens to be on look for alleged L.A. child rapist
Fugitive who allegedly kidnapped and raped 10 year old girl possibly fled to Mexico
Authorities across California and Baja California are looking for a suspect in the rape of a 10 year old Los Angeles girl. One suspect, 29 year old Daniel Martinez, has already been apprehended in connection with the crime that occurred on March 27th. According to authorities, two men are believed to have kidnapped the young girl from a residence in northwest Los Angeles. The victim was reported to have been raped repeatedly for a 12 hour period and then dropped off near a hospital.
Authorities are now searching for the second suspect, 30 year old Tobias Dustin Summers. Authorities stated that Summers is a transient with an extensive criminal record. Los Angeles authorities believe that Summers may have fled to the San Diego area, or possibly into Mexico.
Fox 11 Los Angeles has reported the abduction was possibly the result of a botched burglary. Martinez, the alleged getaway driver, was believed to have been waiting for Summers to emerge from the home with valuables. Instead Summers came out of the home carrying the young girl.
According to KTLA-5 News, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office has charged Summers with kidnapping a minor under 14, first-degree burglary, and nearly three dozen counts of sexual assault. Martinez faces counts of burglary and kidnapping.
Summers is around 5’10’’, 160 pounds, and heavily tattooed. The suspect has light colored hair, but is believed to have possibly shaved his head. According to his Facebook page, the suspect speaks Spanish.
