The first reported incident occurred on June 28, and by July 7, 1990, more than 50 women had been struck by a dart, usually in the buttocks. The victims of attacks by Dart Man all fit a similar profile: light-skinned women attired in business suits or skirts. Witnesses described the attacker as a black man.
In late July, the New York Police Department apprehended Jerome Wright, a 33-year-old Bronx resident who worked as a messenger of an advertising agency. Wright was identified as Dart Man by three witnesses in a police line-up. During Wright's arraignment, it was revealed that he had a prior criminal conviction in 1988 for selling cocaine and in 1989 for petty larceny.
