Planted razor blades found at Mission Bay

SAN DIEGO – A half-dozen razor blades were planted in a park lawn next to Bonita Cove with the apparent intention of cutting people, San Diego lifeguards said.

Lifeguards treated her at the scene, Strobel said. She did not require hospital care.

City personnel cleared visitors out of the area and searched it, finding other razor blades that apparently had been pushed into the grassy ground, sharp side up.

No suspects were identified.

The same type of razor booby-trapping of local parks has happened on prior occasions, leading to injuries, Strobel noted.

The grassy area is near a playground and is heavily used.
