TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police are saying a man arrested Thursday for sexual conduct with a minor may have had contact with more victims.

According to a news release from the Tucson Police Department, Alexander Peth, 23, allegedly engaged in sexual conduct on several occasions with a 13-year-old girl he met in February.

Police say the two met when the victim took snowboard lessons at an Arizona ski resort where Peth was an instructor.

The girl's parents contacted authorities when they became aware that Peth was allegedly inappropriately communicating with their daughter, police say.

Detectives with the TPD's Child Sexual Abuse and Internet Crimes Against Children units say there might be other juvenile females contacted by Peth because of the manner in which he and the victim from this case met.

Peth was charged with three counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of attempted sexual conduct with a minor, and one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation, all felony offenses.

Peth was booked into the Pima County Jail.

Anyone with information about inappropriate communications or relationships Peth has or had with juvenile females is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
