2 arrested in blowgun attack on Kansas girls

NEWTON, Kan. (AP) — Police investigating a blowgun attack on two children in central Kansas have made two arrests.

The incident happened in late July as the girls, ages 12 and 14, were swimming in Sand Creek in Newton. The girls said two people who were fishing became annoyed when they swam too close to the fishing lines.

The girls said the anglers followed them to a bike path, picked up blowguns and began firing long darts. The 14-year-old needed treatment after being wounded in the foot.

KAKE-TV reports Newton police have arrested a 32-year-old man on suspicion of battery and assault. A 29-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of obstructing an investigation.

No charges had been filed as of Wednesday.
