INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

A Smithville man charged with multiple counts of child sex crimes may have attacked other victims, police say.

Chester R. Oberg Jr., 58, has been charged with first-degree statutory rape, first-degree child molestation and four counts of first-degree statutory sodomy.

A probable cause statement from last November recounts in disturbing detail the alleged sexual crimes Oberg is accused of.

The alleged victim is an 8-year-old girl. She told authorities Oberg touched her inappropriately in a home near Hardesty and Anderson avenues.

On Wednesday, Oberg was charged with additional charges involving another alleged victim who authorities say he molested in 2005.

Oberg is already in custody and has been since last November.

Police are asking for assistance in identifying any other potential victims in incidents that occurred in the Kansas City metro area.

If you have any information about other possible victims, call the Independence Police Department's investigations unit at 816-325-7330.
