Salt Lake City police want the public's help to identify potential victims of a teenage sex offender.

Police on Thursday arrested and charged a 17-year-old boy with two counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

Investigators believe the teen may have more victims, since he is suspected to have been exposing himself and/or groping female joggers in Salt Lake County for some time, according to a news release from the Salt Lake City Police Department.

The suspect has alluded to previous incidents, said Detective Veronica Montoya, who added that the teens' known alleged victims are adults.

SLCPD is asking potential for victims to come forward by calling their dispatch center at 801-799-3000, with the case number 13-99595.
