FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) — An 18-year-old Pinal County man accused of being a serial sex predator who allegedly targeted fellow high school students has been re-arrested.

Officials say sheriff's detectives arrested Tyler Kost on Thursday on new allegations that include additional cases reported after his initial arrest.

Sheriff Paul Babeu says there are 18 reported victims so far and that other cases may remain unreported.

Kost was released on $10,000 bond after being arrested Monday on suspicion of two counts each of sexual assault and sexual misconduct with a minor.

The County Attorney's Office says it requested a $100,000 bond for Kost but is now asking that he be held without bond. The office says Kost allegedly threatened to kill victims and witnesses.

An office spokesman was not able to immediately identify Kost's lawyer.
