ROCKLEDGE, Fla. —

Investigators said two more children have come forward saying a man from their Rockledge church molested them.

Anthony Berch, 20, is long time member of Faith Life Outreach Christian Kathedral, where some of the alleged attacks happened.

Police said after they announced Berch's arrest on Wednesday, two more children came forward claiming they were also molested by Berch.

The newest allegations are from an 8-year-old and 10-year-old. Police said one victim claimed to have been abused inside the church, while the other said the molestation happened at another location.

"There are charges pending in those cases," Lt. Donna Seyferth with Rockledge police said.

The bishop of the church delined to comment but said he is cooperating with police. A neighbor, William Holloway, told WFTV he's relieved Berch is in jail.

"I think he's exactly where he needs to be for doing such a horrible act," Holloway said.

Berch is being held at the Brevard County Jail on no bond. Detectives said it's possible that more victims may come forward.
