Razor blades found again at Mission Beach park

MISSION BEACH (CNS) – Razor blades were planted again by someone in the grass at a heavily-used play area at a Mission Beach park, and police Sunday recovered seven blades as they closed the park and combed its lawns.

Razor blades have been discovered in Bonita Cove Park at least four times over the past 18 months.

The first of today’s blades were found around 12:15 p.m. in the park, next to West Mission Bay Drive at Mission Boulevard, according to San Diego police.

No injuries were reported, San Diego police Officer Dan Lasher said.

At least three razor blades were found stuck into grass with sharp edges facing up on Sept. 13, but no one was injured in that incident.

In late April, 19 blades were found in the park’s grass. A 7-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy cut their feet on razor blades, which police said then were intentionally planted.

And in August 2013, a 41-year-old woman was cut by one of a half-dozen blades left there.

The park is heavily used by children, as it is across the street from Belmont Park and next to a popular Mission Bay swimming area.
