WATERBURY, Conn. (WTIC) -- Police say 37-year-old Jason Racz was arrested Thursday night after razor blades were found in the bottom of children’s trick-or-treat bags.
According to police, the children were trick or treating in the Horseshoe Drive area of the city. Two separate groups of children were in the area and their parents later found two razor blades along with the candy in the bags, police say.
The investigation took police to a home on Horseshoe Drive where Racz was located. Racz explained that the blades were accidentally spilled or put into the bowl, police say, but did not have an explanation of how the blades were handed out to the children alongside the candy.
According to police, as Racz was escorted from the Detective Bureau to the booking area, he was "physically non-compliant" and had to be restrained.
Racz is charged with Risk of Injury to a Minor, Reckless Endangerment, and Interfering with a Police Officer.
