CHICAGO - A man who allegedly took a photograph of his one-year-old daughter bound in tape then posted it on Facebook with the caption, "This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back," is now facing child abuse charges.

Andre Curry, 21, is charged with aggravated domestic battery and scheduled for a bond hearing Wednesday. Police say he used painter's tape to bind the girl's wrists and ankles and cover her mouth.

According to a Chicago police spokesperson, the department learned of the photograph - which has since been taken off Facebook - on December 14 and opened an investigation in cooperation with the Department of Children and Family Services.

CBS Chicago reports that several Facebook friends posted comments about the photo, including one who calls Curry a "nasty dirty child abuser," and another who claims she called DCFS and alerted them to the photo.

Meanwhile, a DCFS spokesman said the agency has had no prior contact with the family.
