More potential victims have come forward in the coercion case against a Niagara Falls pharmacist accused of making a customer remove her clothing in his store.

The 7 Eyewitness News I-Team has learned three people have made formal statements involving similar actions by Dr. Robert Kendzia.

The Niagara County District Attorney's Office says investigators are pursing a number of tips brought to them since charges against Kendzia were filed earlier this month.

Kendzia, 81, stands accused of repeatedly telling a female customer of MacLeod's Pharmacy on Buffalo Avenue to remove her clothing in front of him. According to investigators, he threatened he would not fill her prescription if she did not comply.

Niagara Falls Police believe more victims may not yet have come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to call the confidential police tipline at 286-4591.
