      Ontario Provincial Police have laid a raft of sexual assault and voyeurism charges against a 31-year-old soldier from CFB Petawawa.

      Cpl. Derrick Gallagher was charged earlier this month with eight counts of sexual assault and two counts of voyeurism.

      Today, police say he has been charged with nine more counts of voyeurism, eight more counts of sexual assault and one count of assault.

      Police say the new charges relate to 10 more alleged victims.  Investigators say they have identified 18 alleged victims and are attempting to identify as many as 50 more potential victims.  

      Police say the victims may have been drugged and might not remember what happened to them.

      Gallagher is set to appear in court in Pembroke, Ont., via video today.

      Police have released a photo of Gallagher and his tattoos and are urging females who have ``been in his company'' to contact the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP detachment.
