A former Fairfax County man who was suspected of slashing women in the buttocks in several area locations in 2011, pleaded guilty Monday in Fairfax County Circuit Court, the Washington Post reports.
Johnny D. Guillen Pimentel was arrested in January 2012 in his native Peru. He pleaded guilty Monday to two counts each of malicious wounding and unlawful wounding. He faces up to seven years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 6.
Pimentel was suspected of using a box cutter to slash nine women in their teens or early 20s between February and June 2011 at Fair Oaks Mall, Tysons Corner Center and other locations. None of the women was seriously wounded.
On Monday, he admitted to attacks on four women. As part of the plea deal, five additional charges were dropped, the Post reported. His attorney did not indicate a reason for the attacks.
