Guilderland school custodian charged with raping 14-year-old girl

GUILDERLAND – A custodian at Farnsworth Middle School in Guilderland has been arrested and charged with rape.

Guilderland police say 28-year-old Raquan Dyson went to the home of a 14-year-old girl with the intention of having sexual intercourse.

They say Dyson previously had sexual contact with the victim.

The investigation continues, and anyone who may have had inappropriate contact with Dyson is urged to contact Guilderland Police.

In a statement, the Guilderland Central School District says the custodian worked the evening shift, so he was not in the building during regular school hours with students.

They also say his access to all school buildings has been revoked.
