Police removed around a dozen razor blades glued onto park equipment, with a white, putty like substance
EAST MOLINE, IL (WQAD) - 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. A 2 year-old was injured because of it.
Not in 19 years with the East Moline Police Department, Lt. Brian Foltz says police responded to Millennium Park at around 12:45 p.m.
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.
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.
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.
