CPPD: Razor Blade Found on Walmart Shopping Cart Handle
At approximately 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 13, Cedar Park Police were called to assist the Cedar Park Fire Department at the Walmart at 201 Walton Way.
While responding to a medical call, firefighters discovered a single razor blade stuck underneath the plastic part of the handle of a shopping cart. The woman using the cart suffered cuts to her hand and was transported to an area hospital.
At this time, the incident is under investigation to determine if this was an intentional act or possibly an accident. We are working with Walmart to have them inspect the rest of their carts for any potential issues.
We would like to take this time to remind you to always be aware of your surroundings and to be extra vigilant. If you do come across anything suspicious, don’t hesitate to call the police.
