SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Prosecutors in Utah have filed additional child sexual abuse charges against the owner of a bounce house and water slide company.

Authorities said in charges filed Wednesday that 33-year-old Bryce Johnson of Heber City touched a boy inappropriately at an ice-skating rink. Prosecutors added two new counts of felony sexual abuse of a child and misdemeanor sexual battery.

He’d previously been charged with three felony counts alleging he abused two boys he had hired to help him set up bounce houses and other play equipment as part of his business, Fun Stuff LLC.

Police have said there could be additional victims because Johnson came into contact with many children through his businesses.

Johnson’s attorney Susanne Gustin says her client will fight the charges.
