Sharp items including razor blades and a bent fork were found hidden in a playground in the small San Bernardino County town of Oro Grande.

Maintenance workers found the items in Oro Grande Park, at the intersection of 3rd Street and Meyer Street, during an inspection of the small community park in the small town just outside of Victorville. According to authorities, the sharp items were all hidden with the "intent to conceal the dangerous items so they would injure the children." Various sharp items were hidden in the sand, while the razor blades were wedged into the playground equipment, according to the LA Times.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department currently has made no arrests, and is asking the community for help in identifying suspects while also remaining vigilant. Authorities believe it to be an isolated incident.

"We need to protect our children and we need anyone who has information regarding this serious crime to come forward," said Sergeant Jim Evans, in a press release.
