Boys hurt by razor blades planted in park

SAN DIEGO – More than a dozen razors were discovered planted in the grass at a children’s playground near Mission Bay after two brothers slashed their feet Wednesday, police said.


Police search park after a dozen razor blades were found.

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.

BonitaCoveRazorBlades2Investigators using metal detectors found 20 razor blades “planted” in the children’s play area , Officer Dino Delimitros said.


“The razor blade were purposely lodged in the grass to cut who ever
stepped on them,” Delemitros said in a statement.

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 searched the playground again Thursday morning to ensure the park was clear of blades.

    I remember something similar happened in the late 90s in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco; somebody dumped a bunch of used syringes in the kiddie sand box there. Didn't understand that behavior back then, still don't.

    Why would anyone wish to hurt random children out having a good time in the park?

    Anyone notice how in bad taste it is to have an ad for Gillette razors for purchase at the top of the story?

    This keeps happening at Mission bay children's parks. Why don't authorities put up cameras to catch the scumbag. This is serious! SDPD and/or local government should be doing so much more to prevent this from happening again!
