    East Moline, Ill., police removed about a dozen razor blades from a playground at Millennium Park on Monday.

    A 2-year-old child was injured Monday after a dozen razor blades were glued to playground equipment at a park in East Moline, Ill.

    According to NBC affiliate KQWC, the child suffered a cut to the hand but was not injured seriously.

    After treating the boy at home, the victim's father and police went back to the park, where they discovered additional razor blades attached to the playground equipment with white putty.

    Police closed the park until all of the razor blades were found and removed from the monkey bars, a slide and the ground. Each blade was affixed to the equipment with the putty-like substance.

    Police are looking for suspects in the case and searching other area parks for similar pranks.

    East Moline is 162 miles west of Chicago.
