The San Francisco Chronicle reports the 5-inch long dart had sunk about two inches into the man's skin.

Officials say that as emergency personnel were speaking with the man, a woman approached them and said she too had been hit by a blow dart in the knee. Both were evaluated by paramedics and released at the scene.

The CHP says it has opened an investigation and that officers are looking for surveillance video of the attacks.
