FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WUSA) -- Three more women have reported being attacked while shopping at popular shopping malls. That's now a total of nine cases of women who say they've been cut on their buttocks by the serial slasher.

The three latest reported cases occurred in February in the Fair Oaks Mall, one of them near the Champps Restaurant and Bar. The other attacks happened at Tysons Corner Mall, Fairfax Towne Center and Greenbriar Shopping Center. 

Surveillance video and photos show the suspect, a Hispanic man, 5 ft. 6 in. tall and heavy set. He wears different clothing, but one item remains constant, a large white watch on his left arm. Investigators believe the man is using either a box cutter or a razor blade when he slashes female shoppers on their backside. 

All of the victims have been young women in their teens or twenties. He's even attacked a woman who was five months pregnant as she was leaving the Fair Oaks Mall in February.

Fairfax County Police are encouraging other victims to come forward as their investigation continues. Please call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), email at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text "TIP187" plus your message to CRIMES/274637.
