SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Tonight, we're hearing from a seven-year-old boy who was seriously hurt at a Mission Bay last week. 

The boy was playing at Bonita Cove Park when he sliced his foot on a razor blade, one of more than a dozen police say were planted in the grass.

Hobbling around on his crutches -- Tristan's right foot has six stitches in it from stepping on a razor blade, believed to be purposely planted at Bonita Cove Park.

"I'm not that worried now because it doesn't even hurt," Tristan said. 

But his mother is worried who would do such a disturbing thing to hurt a little boy.

"Someone who did this just for the pleasure of it is sick," Cassie said. 

San Diego police swept the park with metal detectors that night and the next morning and found more than 19 razor blades and have stepped up patrols in that area.

"I hope they are able to find evidence and the person who did this," Cassie said. 

On Wednesday, Poway brothers -- Tristan and 15-year-old Daniel were playing football barefoot at the park while visiting with family from Idaho.

"So I ran to the other touchdown and I felt a poke so I thought it was just a little cut - so I went to the table to get some napkins but then it started hurting badly," Tristan said. 

His brother also nicked his foot on another razor blade searching for what cut his brother but didn't need to go to the ER like Tristan.

"The doctor said like 14 days or two weeks," Tristan said. 

It would take his foot to heal -- now Tristan doesn't want to go back to the park until it's safe and wants to keep bad people out of parks like Bonita Cove so other families are safe.

"That people that won't do that because they are hurting other people and that's not good," he said. 

Police were called to Bonita Cove Park three times last year for razor blades in the ground.

If you took a picture last Wednesday at the park -- police want to see if anyone suspicious is in the background. They are working with the parks and recreation department to possibly install surveillance cameras.
