FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — A former day laborer has pleaded guilty to sneaking up on multiple women in northern Virginia and cutting their backsides with a razor blade or box cutter.
Johnny Guillen Pimentel pleaded Monday in Fairfax County Circuit Court to two counts each of malicious wounding and unlawful wounding. The attacks occurred over several months in 2011.
He was suspected of slashing nine different women at various retail outlets, including Tysons Corner Center. The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/11GHLx2 ) that under a plea deal, five other counts were dropped.
Neither prosecutors nor Guillen Pimentel’s attorney gave any indication of why he carried out the attacks.
He was arrested in January 2012 after fleeing to his native Peru.
He faces up to seven years in prison at a Sept. 6 sentencing.
