HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. (AP) - The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says a child suffered minor injuries when a plastic bottle he found in a Highlands Ranch park exploded.

Spokesman Ron Hanavan says the child was playing with friends in Dad Clark Park on Tuesday when the child touched the bottle and it exploded. None of the other children were hurt.

Detectives say the bottle contained an “acid-type device” and they are trying to find out who made it and left it in the park.

Sheriff’s deputies stepped up patrols after the discovery, and on Wednesday afternoon they found a similar device at Marcy Park in Highlands Ranch. Investigators say that device had “vented” and, therefore, did not explode.
