BIXBY, Okla. — The Bixby Police Department held a news conference about the arrest of David Menna on Friday.


Police arrested David Menna on Tuesday on suspected sexual battery. He is now charged with sexual exploitation of a vulnerable adult and impersonating a medical provider.

The alleged incident happened at a home in Bixby where police said Menna provided care for the victim in their home. Arrest records allege Menna cared for a man with Parkinson's who is non-verbal. When the man's wife was out of town it is alleged that Menna moved the cameras used to monitor the home and shaved the man's privates despite being told not to do so.

A nurse's aide told police that while at the house on the 12th the victim held onto the nurse's arm in a 'death grip' and when asked if everything was ok the victim shook his head no.

The police did not release much more information in the news conference and said the investigation is ongoing.

Menna previously pleaded no contest to a count of impersonating a medical professional in Osage County. A 2020 USA Today article details allegations across different states.

Bixby police asked anyone that could have information to call (918) 366-8294.
