Police arrested David Gray, 35, on Friday after he was caught in the act of sexually assaulting a 2-year-old in the bathroom of an Orlando-area Chick-fil-A restaurant.
A customer was in the bathroom at the restaurant when he noticed there was activity in one of the bathroom stalls and caught a glimpse of the child’s reflection with Gray, according to a police report.
“The witness was not sure if the baby was bouncing or if they were having sex,” the report said. “The witness stated he flushed the toilet on purpose to let the man hear him in the bathroom. The witness stated, if he panics, then he must be doing something wrong.”
The customer flushed the urinal and saw Gray panic when he realized someone else was in the bathroom with him.
Gray rushed to get dressed before brandishing a stun gun in his efforts to keep the customer from leaving the bathroom, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
“I’ll f_cking kill you,” Gray told the man, according to police.
As the child abuser left the bathroom, the customer began shouting, “Call the police, a child is being abused in the bathroom!”
Gray was working as a home day care provider for the family of the child and was a frequent visitor to the restaurant, according to police.
His former landlord, Sebrina Bryant, told FOX 35 Orlando Gray is the last person she’d suspect of doing such a vicious attack.
“He was just great,” Bryant said. “He was great with the kids, great with paying his rent on time. I never seen any signs.”
Gray now faces charges of sexual battery of a child younger than 12, lewd or lascivious battery and molestation, child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. A judge denied him bail on Saturday, FOX 35 reported.
