NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Police said late Monday they’ve arrested a teenager in connection with a string of dart attacks that wounded three people.

Police said the 15-year-old boy was arrested as a juvenile on assault charges. No weapon was recovered, but police said darts were found in the teen’s apartment. Investigators believe the assailant may have used a blow gun.

Police said three men — ranging in age from 40 to 66 — were hit by darts around 7 p.m. Sunday in the Bath Beach section of Brooklyn.

All three were taken to a hospital in stable condition.
