One dart hit a 20-year-old woman in her left forearm as she walked through a cross walk. Later that night a 35-year-old man was struck in his left forearm.

Police say both were treated for their injuries at a local hospital.

Officers are investigating but say they have no suspects.

Thousands of University of Illinois students have been returning to campus this week ahead of the start of fall classes Monday.
