At least three razor blades were found stuck into grass with sharp edges facing up at a park in Mission Beach Saturday.
Two razor blades were discovered and reported before noon at the Bonita Cove Park, in the 1100 block of West Mission Bay Drive, San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Lee Swanson said. Lifeguards and police closed the park and found a third blade during a search.
Swanson told City News that razor blades being placed in Mission Beach parks has been a “sporadic problem this summer.” The last reported incident happened in April, when two children were cut by upward facing blades in the same area.
A 41-year-old woman was cut last August at the park during a similar incident.
A KGTV Channel 10 reporter tweeted a picture of the first two blades discovered today that showed heavy rusting on the blades, and police said they could be undiscovered blades from one of the previous attacks.
