Women in Fear of Virginia Fanny Slasher
Women in shopping malls across Virginia are having their buttocks slashed by an unknown assailant.
For nearly six months female shoppers in Virginia have been living in fear of the “fanny slasher”; the first attack happened in February, when a woman had her backside slashed with what she described as a boxcutter.
The slasher attacks without warning, and it has now been revealed he has maimed nine victims. Victims have been aged between 18-40 years of age, and the slasher literally leers up slashes and walks away.
Luckily an attack that took place on the last Monday of July in a branch of Forever 18 has allowed the 18-year-old victim, to identify the man via CCTV footage. He is said to be a heavy set Hispanic man approximately 21 years of age, around 5’6” tall.
Criminal profiler Ted Williams spoke to NBC Washington and said that he had examined the attacks and stated they bore considerable similarities to the D.C. Sniper, in the way the attacks are orchestrated.
This story received little attention until a local news networked labeled the attacker the “fanny slasher” which has quite a dramatic difference of terminology outside the US.
The most recent three victims stated that they literally felt someone brush against them, and did not realize they had bee slashed across the buttocks by the man. Some of the lacerations have been mild, while others have been severe and needed stitches.
