The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office is again asking the public to come forward if they've had any contact with a serial sexual assault suspect. 

Jeffrey Eldred, 33, is already facing multiple criminal sexual conduct charges in Ramsey and Hennepin counties, and authorities are "asking for the community's assistance in helping to identify possible additional victims in a serial sexual assault case." 

"Investigators have evidence of additional victims and are asking anyone to come forward; even if they did not have sexual contact with Eldred," the sheriff's office release says.

The public is asked to call 651-266-7320 if they can help. 

Last November, Eldred was charged with criminal sexual conduct in connection to an alleged attempted assault of a woman he met on Tinder.

The victim in the alleged November incident used Eldred's computer the day after and found at least 40 videos that appeared to show Eldred penetrating different women while they slept. 

Videos were identified by each victim's initials, charging documents state. The woman took photos and submitted them to police, which led to a to additional sexual assault charges filed against Eldred by the Hennepin County Attorney's Office. 

The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office issued a similar call for help to the public in April.
