NEW YORK (FOX News) -

An Illinois playground was booby-trapped with straight-edged razors glued to equipment frequented by children, WQAD.com reported.

The sharp razors were discovered by parents at Millennium Park in East Moline, near the state's western border with Iowa. The parents say their 2-year-old son was cut by one of the blades on the monkey bars.

"He said, 'Ouch,'" Sally Jenks, the boy's mom, told the station. "He started bleeding and we looked and they [the razors] were everywhere."

Police in the area are collecting the razor blades and other evidence, the report said.

Jenks reportedly said razors were glued to the park's monkey bars, fire pole and the bottom of the slide.

The boy's father told the station that the blades were facing up, so when someone grabbed the bars, a person could cut their wrist or hands.

"It's pretty sick. Psychotic. Luckily, it wasn't deeper. He wasn't old enough to put his weight on the monkey bars," Jason Kenney, the boy's dad, reportedly said. "What if he didn't cut his hand and he slit his wrist?"
