Two more teenage girls have come forward to report that they too were contacted by a man looking to pay them for sex. 

Several weeks ago, police charged a 32-year-old North Bay man under similar allegations from other girls.

North Bay police say the man is accused of using the fake internet identity "Jake Burton" to lure the girls and then pay them for sexual favours.

The incidents happened between June and November of this year.

The accused man is now facing further charges, including three counts of procuring juvenile prostitution, three counts of luring a child, three counts of invitation to sexual touching, and two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance. He's being held in custody for a bail hearing.
