Balboa Park temporarily closed after razor blades found by trash can

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A Balboa Park playground was closed temporarily Wednesday after a visitor found several razor blades in a trash can.

According to San Diego police, a child’s caretaker discovered the discarded blades at the recreation area in the 2400 block of Park Boulevard about 2:45 p.m.

Officers cordoned off the facility and used a metal detector to search the grounds for any other blades. None were found, Officer Dino Delimitros said.

It was not immediately clear when the play area would reopen to the public.

On several occasions in recent years, people have been injured at several local parks by razor blades maliciously planted in lawns by unknown malefactors.
