St. Louis County, Mo (KSDK) - St. Louis County police want potential victims of Donald Ingerson to come forward.

On Tuesday the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office charged the 67-year-old former teacher with one count of rape and second-degree statutory sodomy.

NewsChannel 5 has learned Ingerson taught at University City High School from 1976 until 1981, teaching biology and coaching football and wrestling.  A spokesperson for the district says they did not receive any complaints about him while he was working for the district.

Ingerson also taught science and coached at McCluer High School in the Ferguson-Florissant School District from 1987-2010. A spokesperson for the school district said it received no complaints while Ingerson taught there.

A spokesperson for the Ritenour School District verified Ingerson was an assistant baseball coach at Ritenour High School from June 2001 to September 2005, and then he left voluntarily and returned in February 2011 to be the freshman baseball coach at the school until April 2012.

The Ritenour School District spokesperson says no complaints were filed with the district against Ingerson.

Ingerson may have taught at three or four other school districts in St. Louis County.

St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch said at a press conference Tuesday Ingerson called in June from his home in Minnesota to confess because he thought the statute of limitations on the crimes was up. He then came to St. Louis on Sunday to talk with investigators. Ingerson found out after he was arrested and charged that the statute of limitations had not run out.

St. Louis County police identified two potential victims and are asking any other potential victims to call 314-889-2341.

Ingerson is currently being held on a $300,000 cash only bond.
