EAGLE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho teenager has been charged as an adult in connection with five sexual assaults, and law enforcement officials say they believe there may be more victims.

The Ada County Sheriff's office says 17-year-old Cory R. Campbell was arrested May 30 and charged with four counts of rape and one count of forcible penetration. Prosecutors say Campbell "forced himself" on five teenage girls between September 2018 and March 2019.

The sheriff's office says none of the alleged assaults were random, and all occurred in Eagle-area homes or a vehicle.

Campbell is being held at a juvenile detention center. His attorney could not be immediately reached for comment, and Campbell has not yet entered a plea.

A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Friday.
