Suspect Arrested in LA Kidnapping, Second Suspect Sought

Hemera/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- A suspect has been arrested in the kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl out of her bedroom last week, but cops are searching for a second suspect, Los Angeles police said Monday.

Cops on Sunday collared Daniel Martinez, 29, of West Hills, Calif., and charged him in last week's kidnapping of the girl from her San Fernando Valley home.

The girl, whom ABC News has not identified, was abducted from her home around 3 a.m. last Wednesday. She was found about 12 hours later, barefoot and bruised and wearing different clothing than she had on when she was kidnapped.

Police believed she was held at a storage facility and at another location, and was transported in two cars.

Bail was set at $100,000, but it is unknown whether he has hired an attorney.

Martinez, however, is not the principal suspect in the kidnapping, police said. Cops are still looking for Tobias Dustin Summers, 30, a transient with a criminal history.

"We have no information that the [girl's] family knew this individual or that the individual knew any members of the family," Los Angeles Police Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese said of Dustin this weekend.
