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

One woman told police she was walking along a street Sunday evening 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.

Anyone with information is asked to call Newark Police at (740) 670-7200.
