A former gymnastics coach faces new accusations he inappropriately touched young students.

The Apex Police Department announced Wednesday it has charged 35-year-old Phillip Darryl Thompson - of Stoney Glen Drive in Winston-Salem - with four counts of indecent liberties with a minor.

A department spokesperson said the charges stem from alleged incidents when Thompson was a coach at Impact Gym from early 2001 until the end of 2003. The victims were ages 6 and 9 years of age at the time. Impact Gym is no longer in business.

In 2008, ABC11 reported Thompson - a former cheerleader at NC State - was charged in Sanford with 15 counts of indecent liberties. Police said Thompson molested 11 female students while employed at Sanford Academy of Gymnastics and Cheerleading.

Thompson is currently a registered sex offender in Forsyth County.
