A screen shot from surveillance video at the Greenbriar Shopping Center Marshall's, which shows the suspected serial butt slasher entering the store June 20.

Police in Fairfax County have posted a video on YouTube that they hope will help them catch a man believed responsible for roughly half a dozen slashing attacks on young women.

Police say a man cut those victims on their backsides with a box cutter or other sharp object while they were shopping in retail outlets across the county. Several victims have suffered bleeding wounds on their buttocks.

Police have identified six separate attacks that date as far back as February.

The video shows the man they have identified as a suspect entering a Marshall's at Greenbriar Shopping Center in Chantilly on June 20. Other attacks have occurred at the Fair Oaks Mall, Fairfax Town Center, and Tyson's Corner, according to an NBC Washington report.

The suspect is described as Hispanic, in his late 20s, around 5'6", and heavyset.
