Chambersburg PD charge man after crib video allegedly shows man slamming, abusing one year old child

15 February 2024- A South Carolina man is facing child abuse charges following an incident last year in the borough of Chambersburg that could have caused serious injury to a 1 year old. James Glogouski is free on an unsecured bail of $35,000 after being charged with felony child endangerment and reckless endangerment.

Chambersburg PD were initially notified on July 28th, 2023 of an incident that could potentially be child abuse of a young boy. The victim, coming forward to CPD, allegedly told them that her son’s father, James Glogouski, had violently picked him up out of his crib before slamming him back down. This, she said, was also caught on video footage. The child at the time of the incident was 1 year and 2 months old.

Video of the child’s crib monitor was obtained by CPD, with the incident reportedly taking place on June 11 2023 around 4am. In the video, CPD say the child was crying when Glogouski comes into frame, grabs the child, then forcefully lays them back down. This action caused the child’s chin to make contact with his chest, contorting his body. After this, CPD say Glogouski can be seen putting his hands in his pants, scratching his groin area, then sticking his finger partially into the child’s mouth. Glogouski’s hand was reportedly far enough into the child’s mouth to cause him to gag.

In another video obtained by CPD, Glogouski enters the frame and allegedly grabs the shirt of the child and pulls him out of the crib forcefully. This, CPD say, was done with enough force to cause the victim to have their head jerk backwards.

Due to the child’s age, CPD say in their official court filings, Glogouski’s actions could have easily caused serious bodily injury to the child’s neck and head.

James Glogouski is free on an unsecured bail of $35,000.
