Delaware state police have arrested a suspect in last summer's blow dart attacks on joggers and bicyclists.
Twenty-year-old Hamilton Smith of Bear was arrested Feb. 9 and charged with second-degree assault and conspiracy.
Troopers said was involved with two of the four total incidents, both along Route 9 in Wilmington on Aug. 11. In those, a bicyclist was shot in the thigh with a blow dart. Hours later, a jogger was hit in the leg.
Smith admitted his role as the driver, according to court documents.
The arrest was only made public on Wednesday because Delaware State Police didn’t want to compromise any possible leads.
Smith is free on bail awaiting trial.
Police were hoping to nab up to two other suspects in the cases. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
