A butcher arrested on suspicion of abducting missing student Libby Squire stopped to help her when he spotted her crying at the side of the road, his sister has told The Telegraph.
Married father of two Paweł Rełowicz was arrested on Wednesday night, at his rented home in Hull, just half a mile from where Miss Squire disappeared.
The 24-year-old, a Polish national who works as a butcher in Malton, North Yorkshire, allegedly offered to give her a lift home when he spotted her in a distressed state just after midnight.
Speaking to the Telegraph, his sister Paulina Szymanska, said he had spoken to Miss Squire on the night, but insisted he had nothing to do with her disappearance.
She said: “I don’t believe my brother could do it. We were raised to be good people. He was driving and he stopped because he noticed a girl crying.
“She asked him to take her home, so he put her address into his sat nav and wanted to do just that. Apparently she threw herself at him, but he pushed her away because he is a married man.”
