IRMA, Wis. (AP) - Two Irma men could face child abuse charges after they allegedly duct taped a child to a door.

WSAW reports that the incident happened in the Town of Birch. Investigators got a call last week that a 3-year-old child had been duct taped to a door. A Lincoln County sheriff’s deputy said that the investigation found the child was bound by the hands and feet, but there were conflicting stories about which man was responsible.

The deputy is recommending that the 21-year-old and 22-year-old man be charged with felony physical abuse of a child and reckless causation of bodily harm, because the child had an allergic reaction to the tape.

The case is being referred to prosecutors
