Man Shot With Hunting Arrow

Sep 26, 2003 10:23 am US/Eastern

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) A man was shot in the stomach with a 16-inch hunting arrow by a motorist in a passing sport utility vehicle, police said.

Benito Vargas, 48, said he was walking home from work around 1 a.m. Sunday when the driver's side window of a white SUV slid open, exposing the front part of a crossbow. A red, broad-head tipped arrow, generally used for hunting animals, landed in Vargas's stomach.

Vargas, a restaurant worker, was released Wednesday from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Police said he had been unable to provide descriptions of four people who were allegedly inside the SUV.

The shooting appeared to be random, West Chester Detective Thomas Yarnall said.
