A Florida man allegedly sexually assaulted a 2-year-old child in the bathroom of a Chick-fil-A restaurant and then threatened a witness with a stun gun, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Police on Friday morning arrested 35-year-old David Gray near the restaurant in connection with the incident.
The witness told investigators that he thought there was a problem when he saw a reflection of the child with Gray in a bathroom stall.
After the witness flushed a urinal, Gray reportedly panicked because he realized there was someone else in the bathroom, according to police records.
Gray then quickly got dressed, displayed a stun gun and attempted to prevent the witness from exiting the bathroom.
“I’ll (expletive) kill you,” Gray told the witnesses, according to police.
Gray, who was in a motorized wheelchair, ran over the witness’ foot with the device as he took the child and left the bathroom.
The witness then yelled, “Call the police; a child is being abused in the bathroom,” according to police.
Gray had been to the restaurant with children previously and had taken the same child into the bathroom before, a restaurant employee said.
Gray’s relationship with the child is not clear, but police have interviewed a woman who said Gray works at a daycare.
After an interview with officers at the Orlando Police Department, Gray reportedly said he would confess to what happened, records show.
“What else am I going to do? Might as well get it over,” Gray said.
Prosecutors have charged Gray with lewd or lascivious battery and molestation, sexual battery of a child younger than 12, child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
He is in jail without bond.
