Police in an Ontario city are searching for a person who glued shards of glass onto playground equipment. A parent in Burlington found the shards attached to a slide and monkey bars at the city's Desjardines Park. The person removed the shards, which had been attached with silicon and glue, and called police on Sunday.

City workers then began checking other playgrounds in the city, and school officials scoured schoolyards.

Police said it appears as if it was done deliberately, but added that the vandalism looks like an isolated incident.

"Whoever has done this is a sick individual," said Mayor Rob MacIsaac.
