Dad with joint custody abuses 3-year-old daughter, girlfriend's kids (Dunmore, Pennsylvania)

Once again, the stark reality is airbrushed out of the media account. Dad ROBERT WOLISKI was obviously awarded joint custody of the 3-year-old girl, despite being an abusive little f***. Makes me wonder what evidence of abuse was present before, but ignored by a family court. It was only because of the persistent bravery of the protective mother that the abuse of his girlfriend's kids was also brought to light. Wonder how long she has fought this battle alone. How much you want to bet that Mom was abused as well?

But what judge gave this @$$hat joint custody? Who facilitated the abuse? Of course that name is not named. Rarely is.

Police: Dunmore man abused kids

DUNMORE — Authorities arrested a 31-year-old Dunmore man Tuesday afternoon and charged him with beating his 3-year-old daughter and his girlfriend’s 5- and 9-year-old sons.

Robert Woliski, 1309 Prescott Ave., was taken into custody without incident on foot in the 2200 block of Stafford Avenue in Scranton at about 4:45 p.m. after a joint effort by Dunmore police, U.S. Marshals and Scranton police’s Street Crimes Unit and Special Investigations Division, Dunmore Detective Michael Lydon said.

Mr. Woliski had been on the run for a few days. He is charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of children, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

A criminal complaint filed by Detective Lydon details abuse that came to light Friday after the 3-year-old’s mother picked her up from Mr. Woliski’s home and noticed a bruise on the child’s face and on her throat. She asked what happened.

“Daddy choked me and put me under water,” the child said.

The next morning, the girl complained of head pain and the mother prepared to take her to the hospital. On the way there, she called Mr. Woliski, who asked that she take the child to him so he could see what was wrong with her. She did, but ultimately took the child to Moses Taylor Hospital, which began the process that got police involved.

The three children were interviewed at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania on Sunday and each spoke of the abuse. The 3-year-old said her father “slaps her in the face” and punches her. He holds her underwater during baths. Her father frightens her, she said. Police also learned that Mr. Woliski bit her near her left hip, causing a bruise.

The 9-year-old boy explained Mr. Woliski commonly grabs the girl by her throat and slams her off her bed. He also said he, too, has been grabbed around his neck and slammed against a wall. The 9-year-old did not see Mr. Woliski hold the girl under water during a bath but heard her gurgling and struggling for air, police said.

“How do you like that?” Mr. Woliski said in the bathroom, according to the boy’s statement. “Stick out your tongue, I’m biting it off.”

After, the girl exited the bathroom, crying and apparently in pain. Her tongue bled slightly.

The 5-year-old boy also said Mr. Woliski punched him in the stomach. He added that Mr. Woliski told him not to talk about “this stuff.”

Police interviewed Mr. Woliski’s live-in girlfriend Sunday, who explained Mr. Woliski would tell her the bruises she’d notice on the 3-year-old were from her falling off the bed. She suspected child abuse but feared to report it because she worried Mr. Woliski would retaliate against her sons, police said.

Before and during that interview, Mr. Woliski sent several text messages to his girlfriend, police said.

“Ok so what is going on are they looking for me,” read one.

She responded, “not that I know of.”

He sent a message: “... I’m not going back to jail for nobody but myself.”

Mr. Woliski was arraigned Tuesday night and remains in Lackawanna County Prison $20,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
