BROOKHAVEN, Pa. (April 2, 2014) Razor blades were found duct-taped to playground equipment at a park in Brookhaven, Pa., outside of Philadelphia, police said.
The blades affixed to equipment in Eaton Park could have injured children playing in the area, police said.
Other parks in the town were checked and were clear, but will be checked by both patrol and plainclothes officers on every shift, police said.
On their Facebook page, police asked parents to check equipment before letting children play, and said older, unescorted children should be warned as well.
Police credited maintenance personnel for discovering the blades.
No injuries were reported.
A week ago, authorities in western Illinois found a dozen razor blades glued to playground equipment in a city park in East Moline.
