Detective Alicia Henson says the attack started after some kids on the playground got into a physical fight.

Henson says a child involved left to get their mother. That woman came to the playground armed with Mace and sprayed multiple people, including the 3-year-old.

“This kind of unprovoked attack, especially where there are young children involved, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Detective Henson said.
