A man has been arrested after posting a photo on Facebook
Chicago police have arrested a man who they say posted a photo online of his one-year-old daughter bound in duct tape.
According to The Smoking Gun, Andre Curry, 21, was charged with aggravated domestic battery after displaying a photo on his Facebook profile showing the girl with her wrists and ankles wrapped in blue duct tape, with tape also placed over her mouth. Curry added the caption, “This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back. ; ).”
The image didn’t go over very well with some of Curry’s Facebook friends, who left comments on the photo saying things like, “U goin to jail,” and another calling him a “nasty dirty child abuser.”
The Sun-Times reports that another one of Curry’s Facebook friends reported him to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, who presumably alerted police to the photo.
The photo has since been removed from Curry’s Facebook account.
One of Curry’s friends, Je’Vanna Cobbins, told TSG that she thought he was likely “just playing around” and that he likely didn’t physically harm the girl.
DCFS indicated that they are conducting an investigation into the alleged abuse, and that they have had no previous reports about abuse by Curry or any other members of the family.
