A man with a rifle-like paintball gun blasted pedestrians in East and West Orange streets in unprovoked attacks Tuesday, RLS Media reports.

Officers from both police departments received reports of an individual blasting pedestrians with several rounds of paint before speeding away around 2 p.m. Tuesday, the outlet said.

A gray Toyota Camry and newer model Dodge Charger were being sought in the incidents, which were both apparently spotted in Newark's West Ward.
