Detectives investigating the death of Polish man in Luton are appealing to a man who may be an important witness to come forward.

Wlodzimierz Jablonski, aged 51, from Stockwood Crescent died after an incident at his home earlier this month.

Detective Constable John Rushton, investigating, is keen to trace a man who was seen in the area of Cowper Street and the junction of Tavistock Street at around the time of the incident.

The man is described as white with a Mediterranean complexion, stubble and a beard. He is believed to have had an injury to his arm that was bleeding.

DC Rushton explained why police were releasing the image of the witness:

We have taken the unusual step of releasing an e-fit picture of a man who we believe may be an important witness in this case.

I must stress that we do not suspect him of any involvement whatsoever, but we need to speak to him simply because he was in the area at the time and may be an important witness.

– DC John Rushton, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit

Two men, Janusz Przystawski,48 and Konrad Kaczynski,30, both of Stockwood Crescent, appeared before Luton Crown Court yesterday charged with murder.

They will reappear before the same court for a plea and case management hearing at a date to be confirmed. Both men have been remanded in to custody.

Anyone with information about the identity of this man or if you are the man in question, please contact the Operation Westernhanger incident room on 01707 355666 or Bedfordshire Police on 101.
