Police hunt serial buttock-slasher preying on women shoppers - 27th July 2011

A serial buttock slasher is on the loose in Virginia, police warned today.

Police in Fairfax County have appealed for witnesses after a string of brazen attacks on young women out shopping.

The suspect, described as a heavy-set Hispanic man in his late 20s, distracts women before slashing them across the bottom with a box-cutter or razor.

In the most recent attack, an 18-year-old woman was slashed through a pair of denim shorts as she browsed for clothes at a Forever 21 outlet in Fair Oaks Mall on Monday evening.

She told police she noticed several clothes falling from a rack behind her, saw a man bend to pick them up, then felt a 'sharp pain' in her rear.

The victim believed it was just a coat hanger that hit hear behind, until she realised her denim shorts had been sliced and her bottom was cut and bleeding.

According to police, there have been another four similar attacks in the county since February, all targeting women in their late teens or early 20s.

The last attack before Monday's was on June 20 at the Marshall's department store in the Greenbriar Shopping Centre.

The bottom slasher also struck on June 18 at H&M at Tyson's Corner Mall; May 15 at the Ann Taylor outlet at Fair Oaks Mall; and February 14 at the Champs, also at Fair Oaks Mall. Read More
