Los Angeles police today released the name of a suspect in the kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl who was found hours later wandering around with scrapes and bruises, NBC Los Angeles reports. Police named Tobias Summers, 30, a recently released prisoner with a rap sheet dating back to 2002. Summer was let out last July as part of a program designed to reduce overcrowding in California prisons. Working with the FBI, dozens of police investigators have been putting in extra hours since the case broke Wednesday, the AP reports. See more on the abduction and possible sexual assault here.
