Central Florida practical nurse charged with sexual assault of 90-year-old woman with dementia

A Volusia County man faces multiple felonies after police say he sexually assaulted a 90-year-old woman.

Officers arrested Billy Bunn, 51, of Daytona Beach on Thursday morning for lewd misdemeanor in the presence of the elderly and assaulting a person 65 or older, according to a news release from the New Smyrna Beach Police Department.

Authorities allege Bunn showed the victim his genitals and then grabbed her hand so she could make inappropriate contact with his penis. The victim is disabled and bedridden, suffering from dementia, which means that she could not consent to the act.

Meanwhile, another nurse walked into Bunn’s house during the act. She claimed never to have seen him until Wednesday, although they both work for the same company. She told officials after seeing what was happening, she left the room and returned to the kitchen, according to the press release. The witness said she feared Bunn would confront her if she tried to call for help, so she waited a minute before contacting the hospice owner.

Investigators found no evidence at the scene and Bunn had already left the scene before they arrived, according to the arrest report. They were able to find four video clips and eight digital photos of the suspect entering the victim’s room.
