A Boise man is behind bars, charged with the lewd conduct with a child and the attempted sexual abuse of three others; and Boise Police Detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying any other possible victims of the suspect.

Boise Police began its investigation following a report of lewd conduct with a minor child at a Boise residence June 12. Police linked the suspect to a second incident with three other minors at a Boise address on June 26. 

Boise Police, along with the U.S. Marshall's task force in Canyon County, obtained a warrant and arrested the suspect, 53-year-old LeRoy Mickey of Boise, charging him with a felony count of lewd conduct with a minor child and three felony counts of attempted sexual abuse of a minor. 

Detectives said Thursday that they had reason to believe there may be other victims under the age of 18, and anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
