A FISHPONDS man has appeared in court charged with murder.

Krzystof Solosciuk, aged 38, is due to stand trial next year over the death of Lukasz Grabowski, 32.

Mr Grabowski, who lived in Lawrence Weston, died shortly after being found with serious head injuries in Gloucester on November 21.

Solosciuk, of Pound Drive, has already appeared before magistrates and is set to be tried for murder at Bristol Crown Court in May.

A second man was arrested in connection with the murder on December 3. The 37-year-old, from Bristol, was released under investigation.

Detectives are still appealing for information in relation to the case and are particularly keen to hear from Bristol residents who have seen a black Audi A7 saloon car, a silver Mercedes estate or Vauxhall Vivaro van abandoned in the city.

Detective Chief Inspector Ruth Mather said: "We are working hard to get answers for Lukasz's family and bring those responsible to justice but we need help on specific parts of this case from the public.”

Police have released pictures of the three vehicles they are trying to trace and DCI Mather said: “We think they are now likely to be in the Bristol area, possibly abandoned somewhere, and would urge people there to be on the lookout."

Anyone with information should call 101 and ask for Gloucestershire Police, quoting incident number 291 of November 21.

Detectives are also appealing for witnesses or drivers with dashcam footage relating to the vehicles they are looking for, taken in the vicinity of Great Western Road in Gloucester at about 5.10pm on the day of the incident.

Information can also be submitted online at mipp.police.uk or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
