Northridge Kidnapping Pleads Not Guilty To 37 Felony Charges

SAN FERNANDO ( — The main suspect in the kidnapping of a 10-year-old Northridge girl pleaded not guilty Thursday morning to 37 felony charges.

Tobias Summers, 32, faces one count each of kidnapping a victim under 14, kidnapping to commit another crime, first-degree burglary with a person present and 34 sex-related counts.

Summers, and his accomplice, 29-year-old Daniel Martinez, were wanted in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a 10-year-old Northridge girl on March 27. She was found about 12 hours later wandering around a San Fernando Valley Starbucks parking lot barefoot.

Martinez was arrested on April 1 and has pleaded not guilty to charges.

Summers was arrested on April 23 in Mexico after a nearly month-long manhunt after a tip led authorities to Tecate, Mexico where he was working at a rehab facility.

Summers was captured without incident and positively identified by a Superman tattoo on his chest, one of several known tattoos described by police.

He has been held on $19 million bail since his arrest.

Summers, a convicted felon, was released from custody in July 2012 due to prison overcrowding.

His next court appearance has been scheduled for May 22.
