A man accused of slashing nine women’s posteriors with a box cutter in Fairfax County, Va., pleaded guilty Monday.

Former day laborer Johnny Pimentel pleaded in Circuit Court to two counts each of malicious wounding and unlawful wounding.

Pimentel targeted women at malls and shopping centers throughout the county, police said, distracting his victim, usually by knocking clothing over, before cutting them with a box cutter in a series of attacks that began in February 2011 and continued through July of that year.

None of the victims suffered serious physical injuries from the attacks.

Pimentel was arrested near a shopping mall in his native Peru, in January 2012. He was extradited to the United States in December.

No motivation for the attacks has been revealed.

Pimentel could receive up to seven years in prison at sentencing in Sept. 6.
