Transgender Pedophile Who Assaulted 10-Year-Old Removed from Home Following Community Protest
A notorious transgender pedophile in Scotland was forced out of his house on October 19 following a citizen’s protest against his presence in a public housing complex in which many children resided.
Katie Dolatowski, 22, a trans-identified male, appeared in Kirkcaldy Sheriff’s Court on October 18 after breaching a probation condition which required Dolatowski inform police of his address changes. Dolatowski is a registered sex offender, and his conditions stem from two incidents involving young girls.
On February 8th, 2018, Dolatowski was caught filming a 12-year-old girl in a women’s bathroom at an Asda supermarket in Fife, Scotland. Dolatowski was with a care aide using the women’s restroom and as the pair left, he doubled back alone to film the young girl who was within a cubicle in a state of undress by holding his phone over the cubical wall. After noticing she was being filmed, the girl screamed for help and Dolatowski ran away. He was later identified on the supermarket’s CCTV and 12 seconds of film of the girl were found on his mobile phone and iPad.
Dolatowski offended again soon after on March 4, when he sexually assaulted a girl in the female toilets at another supermarket in Kirkcaldy, Fife. Dolatowski entered the women’s bathroom at the local Morrisons and grabbed a 10-year-old girl by the face, pushing her in to a toilet cubicle and demanding she remove her trousers. Dolatowski also threatened to murder the girl’s mother in an effort to keep her quiet, but the child bravely punched the predator in self-defense, and ran to get her father who was just outside of the washroom.
Despite his two attacks on children, Dolatowski avoided jail for the incidents, and was instead handed a three-year community order. He was also banned from having contact with children, placed on the sex offenders registry, and ordered to complete community service.
In February of 2019, the Courier revealed that Dolatowski, who was homeless, had been housed in a women’s hostel on the basis of his self-declared gender identity. He did not have a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC) – a legal document which declares an individual has changed their name and gender.
According to the Courier report, residents in the women’s shelter were horrified by Dolatowski’s placement there.
“This is a women’s hostel and it’s all women who work here. I feel sick and can’t stop thinking about what [she] has done,” one resident is quoted as having said.
Dolatowski appeared in court this week on charges of breaching an order to register his addresses with the Police due to his sex offender status.
According to the Courier, Dolatowski had been living in Leeds, England, but sought a move closer to home in Kirkaldy. He had attempted to seek accommodation through Women’s Aid, but they did not have any housing in the area Dolatowski wanted to live in.
He deliberately did not notify the Police of his return to live with his mother in Kirkcaldy between June and September of this year, with the court stating it was due to his concerns police would not find his new arrangement “suitable.” For the breach in condition, Dolatowski was handed a four month curfew.
Reduxx has learned that the unregistered address Dolatowski had moved into was a public housing complex in which many children were present.
On the night of October 19, enraged neighbors who became aware of Dolatowski’s presence in the complex surrounded the property and demanded he be removed for the safety of the community. Reduxx reviewed phone camera footage taken by a bystander showing a large number of Police, including a Dog Unit, removing Dolatowski and unidentified others from the property.
Members of the public were heard shouting “get the beast out!” And calling attending officers “beast-protectors.”
Speaking to Reduxx, a resident of the Clarimalt Drive complex, who wishes to remain anonymous, expressed that she had been dismayed to learn that Dolatowski had been living in proximity.
“Why they were housed in an estate where every house has two or more kids, most which are under 10 years old, is beyond me,” the resident said. “We didn’t know until a neighbor told us this morning. Nobody knew he was living there until he was spotted coming out the house with his mother.”
Due to the nature of his crimes, Dolatowski is often referenced in discussions about gender self-identification law and its impact on the safety of women and children.
His crimes were even cited by Harry Potter author JK Rowling, in a tweet where she used him as an example to rebut the claims that such incidents have never occurred.
Dolatowski’s case has also been regularly submitted as evidence to the Scottish Government through the ongoing process of reforming the Gender Recognition Act. However, in responding to a policy analyst group assessing the reforms to the Act, one of the representatives in the Scottish Government appeared to claim that the Dolatowski case had been made up.
