Mom charged for taping up infant

Police say a man didn't think it was as funny as his son's mother when she sent him a picture of the 1-year-old boy bound and gagged with tape

Chicago Sun-Times

CHICAGO — Police say a man didn't think it was as funny as his son's mother when she sent him a picture of the 1-year-old boy bound and gagged with tape in southwest suburban Joliet.

Megan A. Reed, 23, told investigators the incident occurred in September when she was watching over several children who were playing with tape, Chief Mike Trafton said.

"She admitted taking a photo with her phone and sent it in February to the boy's father," Trafton said. Two months later, the man went to police and said he'd had trouble opening messages on his new phone, but had finally gotten it to work.

According to reports, the image shows the boy's mouth is covered and his hands are bound with the clear tape.

A warrant was issued for Reed's arrest, but she was reportedly out of the state until June when she came into the police station with a lawyer. She allegedly said the kids were having fun and her cousin taped the infant and the tape was removed after the photo.

On Monday, Reed, of Lockport, was arrested and booked into the county jail on charges of unlawful restraint and endangering the life or health of a child.
