(KSL News) Syracuse police arrested a man who they say admitted to having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

Police went to the home of 28-year-old Jonathan Simmons after one of the girl's relatives told authorities about the alleged abuse. They soon learned Simmons had a warrant out for his arrest in Nebraska for rape of a child and distribution of narcotics.

Simmons is now in jail, and police believe he may have also had other underage girlfriends in Clearfield, Sunset, Roy and Kanab.
