SAN DIENGO (KSWB) — Around a dozen razors were discovered at a children’s playground near Mission Bay after two brothers slashed their feet Wednesday, police said.

San Diego police received a call from a parent around 7 p.m. stating that her sons, ages 7 and 15, were cut by razors at Bonita Cove in Mission Bay Drive. One boy suffered minor injures that required stitches.

“Paramedics were able to pull the razor blade out [of the 7-year-old boy’s foot],” SDPD Lt. Paul Phillips said.

Investigators using metal detectors found 13 razor blades “planted” in the children’s play area as of 10 p.m., the lieutenant said.

This is not the first time razor blades were scattered around the park. Last September, there were two separate incidents when sharp blades were found.

Police planned on searching the playground throughout the evening to ensure the park was clear of blades.

    This is a sad story….maybe cameras will need to be installed now! Children should wear shoes and not go barefoot any more!
