Suspect from June case at Marshall's in Greenbriar Shopping Center
FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WUSA) -- Police say another woman came forward as a victim of the so-called "Serial-Slasher" case in Fairfax County.
"The woman was shopping at the T.J. Maxx at Fairfax Towne Center on June 8th, when she felt a pinch on her buttocks. As in the other reports, the victim turned around, saw a man picking up pieces of clothing and thought she may have been cut by one of the hangers," Fairfax County Police Said in a news release.
When the woman got home, she noticed the cuts in her clothing and backside, police said. She did not need medical attention, but some of the victims have been left with one to two-inch scars.
Police say the 21-year-old woman may be the sixth victim in a string of assaults that have taken place in retail stores over the last six months.
The first attack happened on February 14th at Fair Oaks Mall, where two other attacks occurred. One happened at the Marshalls in the Greenbrier Shopping Center and another at the H and M at Tyson's Corner.
The suspect is described as a heavy set, Hispanic with a heavy accent, and about 5'6" tall.
