He was later charged with 12 unrelated offences –  five counts of burglary, three counts of voyeurism, three counts of outraging public decency and one of receiving stolen goods.

POLICE: ‘Change in approach saw number of knife crimes recorded in Sheffield fall for first time in five years’ Relowicz appeared in court in Hull yesterday dressed in a grey sweatshirt and sat in the dock with an interpreter and two security dock officers.

He spoke only to confirm his name during a 15-minute appearance.

No pleas were entered and the case was adjourned for a week when the charges will be put to the defendant.

Relowicz was remanded into custody until his next hearing.

His trial date has been set for July 22 at Sheffield Crown Court.

Miss Squire, 21, was reported missing on February 1 and, despite intensive searches since that time, police have found no sign of her.

She is originally from High Wycombe and moved to Hull in 2017 to study philosophy.
