Sexual predator who targeted young women in Hull jailed

|News, Sexual offences

A sexual predator who admitted to preying on young women in Hull was given an eight-and-a-half year prison sentence at Sheffield Crown Court today.

Pawel Relowicz pleaded guilty on 12 August to four counts of voyeurism, three counts of burglary and three counts of outraging public decency.

The court heard that 25 year old Relowicz targeted the young women over a 19-month period from 2017 to 2019, during the evenings and in the early hours of the morning.

Relowicz stole intimate items of little monetary value, or photographs of his female victims in the burglaries. He also spied on some of his victims in their underwear or when they were having sex. At other times he exposed himself as women walked past.

DNA evidence left at the scenes of his crimes led to his identification and prosecution.

Catherine Ainsworth, for the CPS, said: "Pawel Relowicz preyed on his young female victims, violating their privacy at the most intimate level and committing a series of disgusting and disturbing acts of criminality over a period of 19 months.

“The sentence imposed today is a measure of the gravity of his offending, and I hope that the young women he targeted take some measure of comfort from the knowledge that he is now behind bars.”
