A 40-count indictment charges Anand Jon Alexander, a graduate of New York's Parsons School of Design who has worked for many celebrities, with rape, aggravated sex abuse and related crimes that stem from assaults from 2002 through 2006, the Manhattan district attorney's office said.

Many of Alexander's victims came from other cities looking for modeling or other job opportunities, office spokeswoman Barbara Thompson said.

Prosecutors in New York sent an arrest warrant to Los Angeles, asking authorities there to hold Alexander for extradition if he posts the $2.1 million bail a judge set for him this month, Thompson said. Alexander was due back in court there on Dec. 6.
