JUNEAU (AP) -- Juneau police say only one of four reports of rape since October may be prosecuted.
Police said the recent rape reports include a woman who said she was sexually assaulted after she passed out while outdoors Oct. 11. Another woman said a man broke into her Mendenhall Valley home Oct. 26.
On Nov. 11, a resident of a corrections halfway house in the Lemon Creek area said another resident came into her room and assaulted her while she slept. And on Nov. 30, a woman told police she was raped while she and her infant child were asleep in their downtown home.
Ryan Hendrickson has been charged with second-degree sexual assault in the Nov. 11 attack.
''It just seems to be a stronger case all around,'' police head of investigations Sgt. John Boltjes said last week.
Boltjes said so far there is lack of substantial evidence to prosecute the other three cases.
