— Two more people have come forward with claims that a former Christian school volunteer might have inappropriately touched them.

The parents of the potential victims notified Raleigh police last week after hearing news that Donald Cameron, 65, rejected a plea deal stemming from two counts of indecent liberties charges.

Wake County District Attorney Melanie Shekita said those alleged incidents occurred in March and April of last year in Cameron's neighborhood with two girls, ages 8 and 9.

The latest claims allege the incidents occurred on the campus of North Raleigh Christian Academy, where Cameron volunteered in the music library. He worked there for two years but never had any direct supervision over students, according to school Superintendent Dr. S.L. Sherrill.

Sherrill would not comment when asked whether he was aware of any allegations made against Cameron while he volunteered at the school. Cameron chose not to return to the school this year, Sherrill said.

Shekita said investigators have identified three additional victims in California who are now grown women.
