ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A Central Florida man is charged with sexually assaulting a 2-year-old child in a fast-food restaurant bathroom after a witness saw the attack.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that 35-year-old David Gray was arrested Friday morning near a Chik-fil-A restaurant where the assault allegedly took place.

Police say the witness saw the child's reflection with Gray in a bathroom stall. Investigators say Gray, who was in a motorized wheelchair, pulled out a stun gun and tried to keep the witness from leaving the bathroom.

It's not clear how Gray knew the 2-year-old.

Gray 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.

He is jailed without bond and it's unclear if he has a lawyer.
