East Moline, Ill., police removed about a dozen of the blades Monday afternoon at Millennium Park, after the toddler's father reported his son had cut himself. The boy wasn't seriously injured, and his dad treated him at home.
"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," an East Moline police lieutenant told KWQC.
The blades were stuck to monkey bars, a slide, and the ground with white putty. Officers checked other local parks, but the booby-trapping appears to be an isolated incident.
