WASHINGTON – The man suspected in slashing several women’s buttocks in the Fairfax County area last year has been arrested.
Fairfax County police say in a news release that Johnny D. Guillen Pimentel was taken into custody in Lima, Peru, Monday and transported by U.S. Marshals to Fairfax County Tuesday.
He has been charged with six counts of malicious wounding, two counts of attempted malicious wounding and one count of forging a public document.
He is currently being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
In nine separate incidents, young women reported that a man had slashed their clothing as they shopped. One woman reported that she felt a pinch and thought that a hanger had snagged her.
Police convened a task force to find and stop the man responsible. Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Guillen in September 2011.
