    Parents in a Pennsylvania community are on edge after police say a vandal attached razor blades to playground equipment.

    "I can't believe anyone would do that, that's disgusting," said one woman from the Delaware County community.

    The razor blades were found duct-taped on playground equipment at Eaton Park at West Maple and Mount Vernon Avenues in Brookhaven on Tuesday.

    "It's just absurd," said Joe Lombardo, the father of a 3-year-old boy. "I can't believe someone could do something like that. I'd definitely kill somebody over that. If my son got hurt, it would be a great thing for the cops to find them, let's put it that way."

    No children were hurt.

    Brookhaven Police removed the blades and checked other parks in the town. While nothing else was found, police say officers will continue to check the parks during each shift.

    "I do see a group of kids who are up here all the time," said Bob Kilman, who lives near the playground. "I know they're up to no good and I always tell them to get out of here."

    This incident came just a week after a toddler was hurt by razor blades taped to playground equipment in Illinois.

    If you have any information on the vandalism, please call Detective Tim Habich or Officer Robert Barth at 610-876-6142.
