Suspected butt slasher busted in Peru 0
A man suspected of randomly slashing young women's buttocks while they shopped in Virginia has been arrested in Peru.
Police in Fairfax, Va., had issued a warrant in September charging Johnny D. Guillen Pimentel with malicious wounding in one of nine attacks on women in their teens and early 20s, the Washington Post reported. The slashings took place between February and July of last year at several malls.
In a statement released Saturday, Fairfax police spokeswoman Shelley Broderick confirmed that Pimentel was in custody in Peru and that police were "just starting the process of working with federal and international authorities to return him back to Fairfax County."
Authorities learned in mid-December that Pimentel had fled to Peru, where his arrival sparked a flurry of local media coverage dubbing him a "cortela nalgas," or "buttock slasher," the newspaper reported.
