FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Randall George Noble, suspected in sexual assaults of at least 11 victims, has pleaded guilty to four rape-related charges.

Noble, 24, was arrested Feb. 12 after allegedly forcing two girls, ages 13 and 14, to have sex with him. Other victims then stepped forward to report similar incidents.

Investigators believe Noble began victimizing girls when he was just 14 -- his first victim being 7 years old.

"From the knowledge we've received, his actions have continued. There could be more victims out there who haven't stepped forward," Syracuse police Detective Mark Sessions said.

Police said they are aware of 11 victims from West Point, Syracuse, North Ogden, Hooper and Kaysville.

Noble pleaded guilty in 2nd District Court Thursday to rape of a child, aggravated sexual assault, rape and attempted rape. In exchange for the guilty pleas, prosecutors agreed to drop four other charges.

Judge Darwin C. Hansen set May 21 for sentencing.

Davis County prosecutor Craig Peterson and Sessions said they were surprised at how quickly the case was resolved.

"This is a case where Mr. Noble admitted (to officers) to much of the conduct that was alleged," Peterson said.
