Virginia Butt Slasher Arrested In Peru

Johnny Pimentel, 40, was arrested late this week in a shopping mall in Lima. Authorities in Peru say they're holding him at the request of police in Fairfax County.

Pimental is the suspect in a collection of assaults between February and July of last year, in which nine women reported being slashed at malls and retail outlets in Fairfax County. None of the women suffered serious injuries.

A Fairfax police spokesperson says although federal and international authorities are working to coordinate the effort, there is a lot of paperwork to sift through. As a result, extraditing Pimentel to the U.S. is expected to take some time.
