2yr old Toddler is Raped by Family Friend at Seaworld

When I first read this my heart leaped out of my chest as I thought of my little Nunu that will be 2 in a few weeks. On February 17th, A family's sunny trip to Seaworld turns into their worse nightmare as their 2 year old toddler is raped by a family friend in the park.

Michael Grzybowicz, the suspect, visited the park with the mother, father and toddler. It is not clear how the parents know Grzybowicz. The toddler's mother told investigators that she left her daughter with Grzybowicz for about 10 minutes while she and her boyfriend enjoyed an amusement ride.
It is not clear how they found out the toddler had been raped other than the horrific pictures that the alledged rapist saved on his cell phone. The Orange County Sheriff's Office claim the crime was discovered when four pictures of the rape were found on Michael Grzybowicz's cell phone, which he later forwarded to his Yahoo email account. The suspect said he didn't know how they got there. I suspect aliens and crop circles exist too?
A member of the Cocoa Police Department's Sex Crimes Unit confiscated the phone.

SeaWorld Orlando spokesman Nick Gollattscheck had this to say for liability purposes I'm sure,
"Nothing is more important than the safety and welfare of our guests and our team members are trained to report any kind of suspicious behavior. We are cooperating fully with the Orange County Sherriff's office investigation. Illegal behavior of any type is not tolerated at our parks. Our thoughts are with the family at this very difficult time."

Grzybowicz has been held without bail since Saturday in the Brevard County Jail on charges of possessing child pornography. He faces charges of sexual battery on a child younger than 12 years old and lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 12 years old.

I hope he gets life, this is a outstanding and unacceptable situation. What do you all think?


  1. Oh my sad. What is this world coming to? The bible speaks truth. Sad part is there will be more flooring news to come. Wow.. Prayer for that little one. :(

    He's actually a really nice guy who I want to believe is innoccent. There is so much more to this story the media doesn't know. First off was not a stranger. He was a co-worker and family friend. They planned this trip together to the park. So don't blame the parents for leaving the child with him. I even trust him enough I wouldn't have thought twice about it. The media also fails to mention the 2 year old's older brother was also left with him. So he wasn't alone with the child. They were in a public place, so anything that happened could have been viewed by others. The mom comments "my son said he was watching a lizard and the park wasn't crowded." It's still hard for me to understand how nothing would have been notcied. Everywhere on the internet and news it says he raped her. The mother of the child has told me that supposedly he only took pictures of her child. There was no apparent physical harm done to the child. The parents of the girl didn't notice anything wrong. The only reason this was brought up to the attention of the authority and the parents is because his wife "discovered" the images on the phone. She usually has his phone, so why would he put/keep pictures on his phone if he were sick enough to take them? Maybe he did take them and intended to delete them after he e-mailed them, but if that were so why would he wait until later to email them? Photoshop can create anything. Changing the time in the phone then taking a picture of a picture would give the illusion they were taken earlier. I'm not saying he is for sure innocent, but only opening your eyes to other possible explainations. His wife reported it to a cop who happens to be living in their home. A cop she also happens to be having sexual relations with. I can see both sides- if he's guilty, then who else would she trust to tell her discovery to besides not only an officer, but a family friend and love interest? However it makes you wonder is there a huge scandal going on? The mom's boyfriend is also the father of the child, and her recent ex-husband as of few weeks past. So everyone that has bashed her on other blogs for not being with the father and with a new boyfiend is wrong. They are still together, in some way that doesn't make sense to me, because she hated him a month ago and talked about how excited she was to get a divorse. Yet they now suddenly hang out together all the time? Irrelavant for the most part, though interesting when you know the flirtations that went on between the mother and the accused. I personally thought they had something going on behind the scenes. Basically to sum it up, there are many twists and unknown points to this that make you question. Just reading the news report gives a horrible one-demention view. I personally know everyone invoved in this. Regardless of how this ends it's a shame because now many lives are screwed forever. Two families will never be friends anymore. A marraige is over. Childrens' lives are tarnished. Guilty or not, the reports will remain on the internet and his record, even if just as dismissed or dropped. Who's more hurt, a two year old that will never remember what did or didn't happen unless told, or his children who share the same last name and may have to explain where their dad is one day to classmates? Type his name into any search engine and you can only guess the horror that may come.
