2 men charged in kidnapping of 10-year-old

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two men with criminal pasts have been charged in the kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl who was sexually assaulted after being taken at knifepoint from her Los Angeles home in the middle of the night.

Prosecutors filed nearly three dozen counts of sexual assault against 30-year-old fugitive Tobias Summers. He also faces kidnapping and burglary charges along with suspected accomplice Daniel Martinez.

Police are searching for Summers, a transient they identified as a suspect over the weekend.

Authorities believe Martinez waited in a car outside the girl's home and drove a short distance with Summers and the girl after they emerged from the house.

Martinez was expected in court later Wednesday after being arrested on Sunday in Northridge, the area of Los Angeles where the girl lives.
