Woman attacked by arrow lurking in her car seat


You might think twice before just plopping down in your own car seat. You never know what might be waiting there to attack. We're sure this woman has changed her ways.

A St. Paul woman was injured when she was attacked by an arrow hidden in her car seat. Police suspect her ex-husband is to blame.

The 47-year-old woman sat down in her car Tuesday morning parked outside her home and didn't see the arrow concealed in the seat waiting to strike. The arrow, meant for a bow, was sitting tip-side up and the woman was punctured by it when she sat down.

Police were called to assist paramedics in the area of 47 Delos Street at 8:34 a.m. Tuesday. Paramedics took the woman to St. Joseph's Hospital, where she was treated and released.

No arrests have been made, but police are looking into whether the woman's ex-husband was involved, Schnell said. The car had been locked and police believe the suspect may have had a key to the vehicle, he said.
