2 Attacked by Blow Darts in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg police believe teenagers are responsible for attacking two people with blow darts.

Police said Friday that the first occurred earlier this week when a 43-year-old man was riding his bicycle and felt an object strike him.

Then he observed a white compact car leaving the area.
Once the victim returned home he discovered a metal dart in his shirt. The dart did not penetrate his skin.

Authorities said another incident occurred Thursday when a 14-year old was walking his dog.

A vehicle matching the same description had just passed.
Then the victim discovered a minor injury caused by the metal blow dart.

The suspects were described as teenagers.

The names of the victims have not been released.
