NEW YORK (AP) -

Police in New York City say they've arrested a teenager in connection with a string of dart attacks that wounded three people.

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

Police say 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. The men were hit in the back, stomach and legs.

All three were taken to a hospital in stable condition.
