A photo posted on Facebook of a little girl's arms and legs bound together by thick tape and her mouth covered has sparked a police investigation in Chicago.

The image was allegedly posted by the girl's father, Andre Curry, 21, with the caption, "This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back ; )"

Mike Sullivan, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department, said the incident is "still being investigated."

Sullivan said the photo was brought to the police's attention a few days ago when the media notified them even though it was posted in July.

Curry could not be reached for comment.

Curry has since taken the Facebook page down, said Sullivan, but police are trying to contact Facebook for a copy of the page. Sullivan said detectives have spoken to Curry, and that the investigation is ongoing.
