Polish butcher, 24, arrested over Libby Squire’s ‘abduction’ in court

The Polish butcher arrested on suspicion of abducting Libby Squire has been charged with a string of unrelated sexual offences and burgling a house to steal a woman’s sex toys and knickers just three days before the student vanished, a court heard today.

The missing Hull student vanished after a night out in the East Yorkshire ten days ago.

Pawel Relowicz, who moved to the UK from Poland five years ago, was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of abducting her and officers have been searching his home ever since.

Relowicz, 24, was last night charged with voyeurism, burglary and indecency unrelated to Libby’s disappearance and appeared at Hull Magistrates Court this morning. 

The judge was told that just three days before she vanished on January 31 he allegedly broke into a house in a neighbouring street to his and stole sex toys, condoms, knickers and photographs of the female resident.   

Officers have sealed off the property where Paweł Rełowicz (pictured) lives with his wife Jagoda and their two children after towing away his silver Vauxhall Astra from the street outside at 10pm last night.

Today he was swept into court in a white prison van this morning after being kept in custody for five days and was in the dock with an interpreter and flanked by court officers.

Relowicz, a married father-of-two who works in a Humberside bacon factory, pleaded not guilty to outraging public decency, voyeurism and burglary.

The three counts of burglary from December 2017 to January 2019 relate to accusations he stole sex toys, vibrators and condoms from properties in Hull. 

Relowicz was remanded in custody and will appear at Hull Crown Court on March 11. 

District Judge Fred Rutherford said: ‘The matters are too serious for this court and will be sent to the crown court’.

Last night his mother, Marzena Relowicz, 52, told MailOnline: ‘I don’t know what to say, I am just speechless. Why are they keeping him jail? There is something wrong here. I just do not understand this and it is all too much to take in.’

Humberside Police said ‘a 24-year-old man’ – known to be Relowicz – remained ‘of interest to the investigation’ over Libby’s disappearance but has not been charged.

Detective Superintendent Matt Hutchinson said: ‘Twenty-four-year-old Pawel Relowicz has today been charged with voyeurism, outraging public decency and three counts of burglary.

‘An offence of outraging public decency was reported to have taken place on 19 January 2019 and an offence of voyeurism was reported on the 26 December 2018 in Hull, East Yorks.

‘The three burglaries were reported between December 2017 and January 2019.’  

MailOnline informed his mother that her son had been charged with the offences.

Relowicz had been held for 96 hours by police investigating the disappearance of Libby – the maximum amount of time allowed before charges were brought or he was released. 

Earlier, Mrs Relowicz, speaking at the family home in the village of Warszewice, Poland said she had to take medication because she was so stressed by the arrest of her son. 

Marzena had insisted he son could not have been involved with the disappearance of the 21 year old student from near her home in Hull, saying: her son ‘is no killer’.

Mrs Relowicz said she had been told that her son had offered a girl a lift in his silver Vauxhall Astra on the night Libby went missing.

‘Pawel was driving home and saw a girl crying,’ she said. 

‘He had given her a lift as she wanted to go home. He had put her address into his satnav system.

‘I know in my heart that Pawel did not do anything to this girl. He is a good boy who respects women and would not do anything to harm anyone.’

In a tearful interview, the devout Catholic said: ‘If something isn’t right, God forbid, then there must be punishment.’ 

Mrs Relowicz, 52, insisted her son was not capable of harming Miss Squire, 21. 

High-tech cameras were used to search outbuildings in Hull near the home of the philosophy student. 

Placing a hand on her heart, she said: ‘My son Pawel did not abduct that girl. I would rather die than know he is guilty. My heart is breaking over this and I feel so sad for the girl’s parents and what they are going through.

‘I can’t imagine their pain. I desperately hope they find her alive.’
