Police say the new charges relate to 10 more alleged victims.

Gallagher appeared in court in Pembroke, Ont., via video Thursday and he will make another video appearance in a week.

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.

An OPP spokeswoman, Sergeant Kristine Rae, said they are looking to identify more than 50 other women who may have been in contact with Gallagher.

"There's several women out there that we don't know where they're from, and we know this is expanding," she said.
