Police say that similar-looking razor blades have now been found in three separate downtown parks.
The first discovery was made at June Callwood Park in the Lake Shore Boulevard and Bathurst Street area on Monday afternoon.
According to police, a woman was walking her dog in the park when she spotted a number of loose razor blades mixed in with the gravel.
Later that night at around 10:30 p.m., officers were then dispatched to Lisgar Park near Queen and Sudbury streets after a park-goer reported discoverring a number of razor blades that had been scattered throughout the grounds earlier in the day.
CP24 has learned that police are also investigating a third occurrence at a park near Iceboat Terrace and Dan Leckie Way in the CityPlace neighbourhood.
According to Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu, the blades that have been located so far are square with “made in Germany” printed on them.
“They are very similar,” she told CTV News Toronto on Tuesday.
Police are urging members of the public who may spot razor blades at their local park to avoid touching them and instead contact them immediately.
So far the blades have not caused any injuries.
Police continue to investigate.
