TUCSON - A 23-year-old man is under arrest, charged with having sex with a minor.
The investigation started after a concerned parent called 911 to report that their 13-year-old daughter may be having an inappropriate relationship with a man.
Detectives learned the girl met Alexander Peth while the family was visiting an Arizona ski resort in February.
Investigators say Peth gave the girl snowboard lessons at the ski resort.
Her parents became concerned when they found out she continued communicating with him even after they returned home.
During the investigation, Tucson Police say Peth engaged in sexual conduct with the 13-year-old girl several times.
The United States Marshal's Service assisted with locating Peth and took him into custody on Thursday.
He's been charged with three counts of sexual conduct with a minor, 1 count of attempted sexual conduct with a minor, and 1 count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation, all felony offenses.
Investigators are concerned that Peth may have been communicating with other juvenile females similar to this case. Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-Crime.
