NEWTON, Kan. - Two people have been arrested in connection with a blowgun attack on two young girls in Newton.
Marcus Eveland, 32, was arrested on charges of aggravated battery and aggravated assault. Nastassja Mumford, 29, was arrested for obstructing an investigation.
Two Newton girls said they were swimming in Sand Creek earlier this month when they got too close to fishermen. The girls said the anglers followed them to a bike path, picked up blow guns and started firing darts. A dart hit one of the girls in the foot. She was treated for her wound.
