Newark Police say two women separately reported being targeted by someone firing blow darts at them, possibly from a dark-colored vehicle.

The dart attacks occurred Sunday night.

One woman told police she was walking along a street when she felt a sharp pain and found a blow dart several inches long stuck in her upper leg. Police say she was bruised but didn’t require medical treatment.

A second woman told police she found a dart after hearing something hit her umbrella. Police say the darts were the same type but different colors.

They say whoever was responsible could face assault charges.
