Lt. Brian Foltz said police responded to Millennium Park around 12:45 p.m. CT. The boy had been cut on 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," Foltz said.

The boy's father treated him at home and went back to the park with police. They found and removed about a dozen razors glued onto the equipment with a white, putty-like substance.

Other park visitors said they were surprised to see that kind of vandalism.

"We just kind of think about them swinging on the swing set or, you know, climbing the monkey bars," said parent Ty Langley. "You don't really think about razor blades."

Police said they are investigating the incident. They went back to Millennium Park around 5 p.m. to double-check the scene. They also looked at the rest of the city's parks.

"We wanted to check out, just to make sure, and so far, we have not found anything else in any of the parks," Foltz said.
