The LAPD says kidnapping suspect Tobias Dustin Summers has a lengthy criminal record.
The ex-con suspected of kidnapping a 10-year-old Northridge girl was recorded on surveillance video crossing from California into Mexico, the LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Friday, according to NBC LA.
A border security camera filmed Tobias Summers, 30, crossing a footbridge from rural San Diego County into Tecate, Mexico, about 30 miles east of Tijuana, Beck said. Summers was under post-release supervision at the time.
He did not disclose when the video was recorded. The LAPD previously said that they believed the kidnapping suspect was in San Diego.
“We assume that he is hunkered down hiding someplace and we need the public to be aware of what he looks like and what he’s done, so we can get cooperation,” Beck said.
Summers allegedly entered a Northridge home and kidnapped a girl on March 27.
A second suspect, 29-year-old Daniel Martinez, was arrested last week and has since pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and burglary charges.
