One of them rebuffed his advances and never saw Jerry Sandusky again.
Another said the former Penn State University assistant football coach threatened to harm his family if he told anyone about what had happened.
And a third alleged victim to testify Wednesday said he continued to socialize with the defendant and get football tickets from the man for more than nine years after the reported abuse stopped.
Those three men were among six witnesses called in the prosecution's case against Mr. Sandusky, which could move into the defense phase by Friday.
Alleged Victim No. 5 was 10 years old when he was recommended to the Second Mile charity, not because he had a difficult home life but because a school counselor thought it would be a good idea for him to socialize with people who spoke English, since his parents spoke Polish at home.
He met Jerry Sandusky his first year at summer camp, in 1999 -- when the founder of the charity was in a skit playing the role of a Polish gangster -- the witness testified at the Sandusky child sexual abuse trial in the Centre County Courthouse.
At the end of the show, the boy went up and introduced himself and told the then-Penn State defensive coordinator that he was Polish, too.
That's how their friendship began. Over the next few seasons, Mr. Sandusky invited the boy to football games and outings, but unlike other alleged victims who have testified this week, this boy never slept at the defendant's home.
Now 23, the young man recounted to the jury his one and only sexual experience with Mr. Sandusky, which was also the last time he ever saw him.
It was late summer 2001, and Mr. Sandusky had called the boy to see if he'd like to go work out with him. They spent a few minutes on a treadmill and attempting chin-ups in a Penn State building before the coach said they needed to shower.
Mr. Sandusky first took the boy into the sauna in the Lasch football building.
They got undressed and wrapped towels around themselves.
"He parted the towel and he sat back and exposed himself to me," the man said, remembering that it made him uncomfortable.
They then moved to the showers.
The boy took a shower head at the far end of the room, but he said he could feel the defendant looking at him.
"He started coming in my direction. He threw soap in my direction and started lathering my shoulders. I felt his body on my back.
"I kept lurching forward, but I didn't have any farther to go. I felt his penis on my back," he testified.
He told the jury the defendant then placed the boy's hand on his penis. The witness said he was able to slide away and hurriedly left the shower.
Mr. Sandusky was angry, drove the boy home, and they did not speak or make eye contact.
He said he never spoke to Mr. Sandusky again.
That man's testimony differed significantly from that of the person identified as Victim No. 7 in the grand jury presentment. Mr. Sandusky is charged with molesting 10 boys over 15 years.
Now 27 years old, that man said that even after he stopped going on outings with Mr. Sandusky, he continued to request tickets for Penn State football games from the man until 2009.
That witness said he started at The Second Mile in 1995 at age 10 and continued to go to games with Mr. Sandusky until at least 2000.
