    A Massachusetts couple wants to know who's shooting hunting arrows at their house.

    Accurzio and Loretta Schlafani, both in their 70s, say three arrows with razor tips have struck on or near their Worcester home since Friday.

    The first arrow remains stuck in their garage roof because they are physically unable to climb up and pull it out.

    They found a second arrow on their rear deck on Saturday.

    A third arrow struck in their backyard on Sunday.

    Loretta Schlafani says she's concerned because young relatives often visit their home.

    The couple reported the mysterious arrows to police, who took one away as evidence. Lt. Sean Murtha called the situation "odd" and says police have not received any other reports of stray arrows.
