UPDATE (November 18 5:43 p.m.):

A federal criminal complaint has been filed against Victor Arroyo in the Federal District Court for the State of Maryland. The complaint charges him with transportation of a minor.

UPDATE (November 17 5:11 p.m.):

Police in North Carolina have charged 22-year-old Victor Arroyo of Raleigh in connection to the Jasmine Baker case.

Baltimore County Detectives have also obtained an arrest warrant for Victor Arroyo charging him with kidnapping in connection with what happened in Baltimore County in this case. He has not been served with the arrest warrant yet.

UPDATE: November 15, 10 a.m.

Jasmine Leighlin Baker was returned to Maryland this morning by FBI agents. She will be interviewed by BCoPD's Crimes Against Children Unit as part of this ongoing investigation, after which she will be returned to the care and custody of her family.

The suspect, a North Carolina man whose identity has not yet been released, is held in North Carolina by federal law enforcement agents, who continue to question him. Charges are pending.

"It took dedication and skill on the part of our detectives and our partners at the FBI's Baltimore office to find this young girl. I am proud of the work they have done on this case," Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson said.

Original post:

Jasmine Leighlin Baker, the 12-year-old White Marsh girl who disappeared Tuesday morning after she left for school, was located by federal officers in North Carolina this evening.

FBI agents, who have been assisting BCoPD with this case, found Jasmine at about 10:30 p.m. in a residence in the Raleigh area. She appears unharmed and is in North Carolina, in the care of our federal law enforcement partners. She has been taken to a hospital for a medical examination.

Jasmine was in the company of a North Carolina man, believed by police to be in his 30s. This man is being questioned by federal agents.

Detectives continue to investigate how Jasmine met this man and the nature of their interactions over the past few days. Jasmine has not yet been interviewed.

Digital forensics -- specifically, the clues provided by Jasmine's activity on her iPod and Xbox -- played a crucial role in detectives' ability to find her.

BCoPD detectives are investigating a November 7 home invasion and assault on a 31-year-old woman in the 9200 block of Oswald Way, 21237, in Precinct 9/White Marsh. 

Police responded to the Oswald Way home at about 1 a.m. on November 7. The victim, who displayed physical injuries and was later treated at a local hospital, said she was home alone when she was attacked. 

The victim could not provide a description of the suspect. 

Investigators believe the suspect may have been able to access the home through an unlocked door. 

Police advise residents who live in the area where this assault occurred to be vigilant and to report suspicious activity by calling BCoPD at 410-307-2020. Police also ask anyone with information that may be relevant to this case to report it by calling 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
