Police believe this man, Johnny D. Guillen Pimental, left, has fled to Peru. At right, surveillance footage of the alleged attacker.

Police in Fairfax County say they have reason to believe that the so-called "butt slasher," wanted for a series of strange attacks on women in shopping centers in Northern Virginia, has fled the United States and is now residing in Lima, Peru.

Johnny Guillen Pimentel, 40, was identified by police in September, after they received a tip about his identity after releasing security camera footage.

According to police Pimentel would distract young female shoppers, then cut their buttocks with a razor blade or box cutter. He's linked to as many as nine such attacks going back to February of 2011.

It remains unclear to police how Pimentel got to Peru, or whether it's possible that he will be extradicted to face charges.
