CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — Cedar Park Police are investigating after a woman cut her hand on a razor blade that was stuck under a Walmart shopping cart handle on Wednesday. A Cedar Park Police spokeswoman said investigators are working to determine if it was intentional or possibly an accident.

Police were called to help the Cedar Park Fire Department at the Walmart at 201 Walton Way around 11 a.m. The store is right off Whitestone Lane near Highway 183.
