Now police fear there could be more victims.

Ronald Libby, 72, has been released on $50,000 on felony sexual assault charges.

Police say his wife babysat hundreds of children over the last few decades at their home in Salem.

The investigation began in 2010, according to police, when one victim claimed Libby asked her to touch him inappropriately on several occasions.

So far, police have identified one or two victims but expect that number to grow.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at (603) 890-2351.
