TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Police have arrested a 23-year-old Alexander Peth on several counts of sexual misconduct with a minor.
Sgt. Maria Hawke tells KGUN9 that an investigation began when a parent called 911 to report that they believed a 23-year-old man was inappropriately communicating with their 13-year-old daughter.
Detectives learned that Peth and the juvenile female met when the family was visiting an Arizona ski resort in February of 2013.
Peth was an instructor for snowboard lessons the juvenile female took while at the ski resort, said Hawke. Her parents learned the juvenile female continued communicating with Peth after they returned home and grew concerned.
During their investigation, it was determined that Peth engaged in sexual conduct with the juvenile female on multiple occasions.
Personnel from the United States Marshal's Service assisted in locating the Peth and took him into custody on April 18, said Hawke.
Peth has been 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.
Investigators are concerned there may be other juvenile females whom Peth has been communicating.
Anyone with information about inappropriate communications or relationships Peth has or was having with juvenile females is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
