Westlake Couple Arrested for Binding Children With Duct Tape, Biting Them In Chest


A Westlake couple is behind bars after the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office said they committed incredible abuse on a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old in their own family.  The two are accused of binding one of the children with duct tape and biting the other in the chest.

Arrested were Brandon L. Sullivan, 31, of Westlake and his girlfriend, Christy Willhite, 27.  Both were family members of the child victims. Last Thursday, police were dispatched to a Sulphur elementary school where they found:

…a 6 year old boy with numerous marks and remnants of duct tape all over his body.  The investigation revealed family member Brandon L. Sullivan, 31, Westlake, used duct tape to tie up the little boy’s hands, wrists, ankles, and also put duct tape around his head.   Detectives also discovered Sullivan physically abused a 7 year old family member by biting the boy in the chest area.

During further investigation, detectives discovered Sullivan’s girlfriend  also a family member of both victims, had witnessed the abuse and failed to report the incidents.

Judge Clayton Davis set Sullivan’s bond at $400,000; and set Willhite’s bond at $200,000. The victims were removed from the home by the Department of Children & Family Services.
