Two bags containing human remains were found in a Bronx Park Tuesday, days after a similar discovery in another park in the borough, police said.

The remains, which included a foot and an arm, were found in Barretto Point Park in Hunts Point at about 7:30 p.m., according to police.

On Friday, two bags containing the remains of an unidentified woman were found in Crotona Park, about three miles north of Barretto Point Park. Police released a sketch of the woman Saturday, in hopes of identifying her.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the discoveries were connected.

No arrests have been made and the investigations were ongoing.
