NEWARK, Ohio (AP) — Police in a central Ohio town are investigating a series of blow dart attacks.

The Advocate in Newark reports (http://ohne.ws/17jyMp3 ) that a 13-year-old boy was stuck by a dart while riding his bike Wednesday night, though the dart didn't pierce his skin.

It was the third blow dart incident over the last several weeks in the town. One woman reported that she was shot in the leg by a dart, causing a minor injury. Another woman said a dart hit the umbrella she was carrying.

The boy told police the license plate number of a vehicle that the dart appeared to have come from.

Police Sgt. Paul Davis told the newspaper that authorities were able to stop the vehicle, and they recovered another blow dart. He said the investigation continues.
