STEVENS POINT, Wis. (CBS/AP) A Wisconsin woman's apparent accuracy with a blow gun put her in the sights of police in downtown Stevens Point.

Police arrested 41-year-old Paula Wolf for allegedly hitting four people with darts shot from a minivan Wednesday, April 21.

Police got a call from a 25-year-old woman who said she was walking downtown minding her business when all of a sudden she felt something hit her in the chest.

Within a half-hour three other victims came forward to report the same thing happened to them, says The Stevens Point Journal.

Apparently, the sharpshooter wasn't too discreet because one of the victims told police she saw the dart being shot from a pipe, sticking out the window of a black minivan.

With the description of the vehicle, it didn't take long for police to apprehend the dart-blowing suspect and her blow gun; however, police say they found more weapons in her arsenal, including a slingshot and a bucket of rocks.

They also say Paula Wolf admitted shooting the pedestrians. Why, you may ask? She allegedly told an officer that she "liked to hear people say ouch."

She's charged with recklessly endangering people's safety.
