The New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision has issued an “alert” for a trans-identified child rapist whose whereabouts are currently unknown.
Robert Glanowski, 36, has been designated as a wanted fugitive in the state of New York. The Department of Special Operations has included Glanowski on a list of one of its Most Wanted, and has warned the public that he “should be considered armed and dangerous.”
According to his profile, Glanowski is a registered sex offender and raped a 10 year old girl in Tonawanda, New York. The listing also notes that he “identifies as a female.”
The rape occurred in February of 2008 after Glanowski became romantically involved with the girl’s mother. He’d moved in with the family in November of 2007 and took on a paternal role. One of the sexual assaults took place while Glanowski was reading the girl a bedtime story, with others taking place over the course of Glanowski’s residence at their home.
In March, the victim would confide in relatives and reveal the abuse she’d been experiencing. Her grandparents immediately called the police, and a hospital examination of the girl demonstrated signs of sexual trauma.
In 2014, Glanowski attempted to seek a name change but was denied by the New York Supreme Court. His 2016 appeal was also quickly denied, with the ruling noting that the name change “would create record-keeping problems for law enforcement officials and would create potential danger to the victim and the general public.”
Glanowski is described as being 5’10 and weighing 210lbs. In a provided mugshot he is seen with long, dark hair and wearing glasses.
Anyone with information on Glanowski’s whereabouts is encouraged to call Investigator Dan Higgins at 716-846-5723, or Senior Investigator Dan Davis at 518-527-9523.
