A man already behind bars on rape charges is being charged with additional felonies, including an additional charge of battery with intent to commit rape, Boise police announced late Friday.

Detectives said a five-year investigation led them to the January 2015 arrest of 26-year-old Andy Gallegos of Boise, who was accused of rape and attempted rape in or near North End homes and in Winstead Park in 2009, another in 2010. Gallegos was also charged with two counts of burglary

On Friday, detectives said they had enough evidence to charge Gallegos with battery with intent to commit rape and burglary in connection with another incident in a North End home in June 2009. Police said Gallegos is accused of entering women's bedrooms at night while they slept.

The case is far from closed. Boise police say they're concerned similar crimes may have occurred but went unreported between 2008 Gallegos' January arrest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
