(Littlestown) -- A midstate high school music teacher has been accused of sexually abusing or harassing four current or former female students, including forcing one to perform a sex act repeatedly on school property.

Thirty-two-year-old Littlestown High School teacher Nicholas Oaster was arraigned Tuesday on charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors and harassment.

The school district says Oaster, who directs the marching band and school chorus, was placed on administrative leave after a former student first raised the allegations last month. Since then, police say three other girls have come forward.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Oaster, who faces a preliminary hearing May 24.

Police say some of the incidents date to 2011.
