Transgender woman, 18, sexually assaulted girl, 10, in female toilets in Morrisons

A TRANSGENDER woman, 18, sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl in the female toilets of a Morrisons supermarket.

Katie Dolatowski previously admitted grabbing the young victim by her face and forcing her into a cubicle at the supermarket in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

The teenager then demanded the girl take her trousers off and threatened she would stab her mother during the attack on March 4.

Just weeks earlier she had targeted another young girl as she used the toilet at an Asda in Halbeath on February 8 last year.

The child had been sitting in a cubicle with her trousers down when she saw a mobile phone being held over the partition wall.

The young girl shouted and the assailant, later identified as Dolatowski, ran from the scene.

Dolatowski narrowly avoided being sent into custody when she appeared for sentencing in January and was instead handed a strict three-year community payback order.

She was banned from having contact with children and placed on the sex offenders register as well as being ordered to perform 100 hours of unpaid work.

A court oversight meant a condition banning her from deleting her online history was not attached to the order at the time of her sentencing.

Dolatowski appeared at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court yesterday and was warned she faced being sent into custody if she tried to cover her tracks on social media.

The court was told how a social worker was concerned that Dolatowski had been erasing her internet chat history and there was “heightened risk” of her being involved in criminal activity.

Dolatowski, who is also on an electronic tag, also admitted twice breaching her CPO by failing to attend for appointments.

Defence solicitor Alan Davie said: “She is somebody who requires to be monitored very closely and it has not gone terribly well. There is some level of compliance.”

Sheriff James Williamson said: “One of the worrying features in the report suggests that you have been accessing the internet and then trying to hide who you have been in contact with.

One of the conditions now attached to the order will be that you do not delete the history off any devices.

“If you are now found to be hiding internet messages or social media outlets, that will be a breach and you will go to prison, or in your case a young offenders institute.”

The sheriff deferred sentence for consideration of the two CPO breaches and ordered Dolatowski to reappear on April 9 for a review.
