Creating a Point at a specific distance between two Points

Hello, I am trying to create a new point shapefile and I am unsure how to create it. 

I want to create a new series of points that would be based on a specific distance between two points in an existing point data set. 

 

I have already created an attribute table with two target points that the new point should be in-between and a specified distance that the new point should be away from one of the points towards the direction of the other point.

 

For example,

New point A  should be between existing point 1 and point 2, 60m from point 1 towards point 2

New point B  should be between existing point 2 and point 3, 80m from point 2 towards point 3

New point C  should be between existing point 3 and point 4, 106m from point 3 towards point 4

etc.

 

I am sure there are tools that can do this in ARC, but I am unsure what to use or how to get started, any help would be much appreciated.
