It's perhaps the last thing you'd expect to find at a playground. Authorities say they found razor blades glued to playground equipment at a park in East Moline, Illinois. And a two-year-old boy was injured because of it. Kiya Edwards has the story. "I've seen a lot of things, but not razor blades glued to equipment at a park." Not in 19 years with the East Molie Police Department. Lt. Brian Foltz says police responded to Millennium Park at around 12:45 p.m. A two-year-old had been cut on his hand. "East Moline parks are safe, but it's just a bad situation, bad instance where somebody, or maybe a group of kids, I don't know who did this, but figured this would be a fun prank to do," says Lt. Foltz. The boy's father treated him at home, and went with police to the park, where they say they found and removed around a dozen razor blades glued onto park equipment, with a white, putty-like substance. The evidence remains visible. "It's something I know I can look out for now, if ever I'm here," says Ty Langley, father of the injured youngster. Parents say they're surprised to see this kind of vandalism. "We just kind of think about them swinging on the swing set or, you know, climbing the monkey bars," says Langley. "You don't really think about razor blades." Police say they're investigating the incident. They went back to Millennium Park at around 5 p.m., double checking the scene. They say they also looked at the rest of East Moline's parks. "We wanted to check out, just to make sure, and so far, we have not found anything else in any of the parks," says Lt. Foltz. Police say there have been other vandalism type incidents in East Moline recently and are asking neighbors to keep an eye out for anything unusual at area parks.
