EAST MOLINE, IL (WKOW) - A 2-year-old in East Moline, Illinois was injured Monday by razor blades glued to playground equipment.

Police responded to Millennium Park around 12:45 p.m. where they found the boy with cuts to his hand.

"East Moline parks are safe, but it's just a bad situation, bad instance where somebody or maybe a group of kids, I don't know who did this, but figured this would be a fun prank to do," Lt. Brian Foltz said.

Police say they found and removed about a dozen razors glued onto the equipment with a white, putty-like substance.

Police said they are investigating the incident. They also looked at the rest of the city's parks.
