And this has parents worried. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MOTHER JULLIENNA ENDRES, SAYING: "I'm not bringing my child here again...unless they catch this person that's doing this, there's no way. Even if they clean it up... No." Two boys were treated for cuts on their feet, after stepping on razor blades in Mission Bay's Bonita Cove Park. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MOTHER CASSIE PADILLA, SAYING: "That's just crazy that anybody would do something like that." This is nothing new for parks in this area.
