GEORIGA -

A Georgia family is demanding answers after they said their home surveillance camera captured someone spraying poison on their son's toy slide. 

The video showed someone walking into their backyard on Thursday morning. The suspect stood in front of the slide, reached into his pocket and appeared to have left something on on the slide. They believe the suspect's shoes may have traces of the poison because there was dead grass surrounding the slide. 

The mom said, "You think you can leave your kids' toys out and they'd be safe. I couldn't sleep last night. I was so concerned. You know, why would someone target a child's toy?".

The family believes they were randomly targeted since neighbors haven't reported anything similar happening to them.
