Details of Incident

 Incident Number: 291 of 21 November 


 Police are seeking further help from the public as they continue to investigate the suspected murder of a man in the city.

Lukasz Grabowski has been formally identified as the victim in the case. 

The 32-year-old Bristol man, originally from Poland, was found with serious head injuries in Great Western Road at around 5.10pm on Wednesday (21 November). He died a short time later.

Officers now want to hear from a key witness who was in Hyde Lane at around 4.30pm on the evening of the incident.

Police have also established that one of the cars involved was a black Audi A7 and want people in Gloucester to come forward if they saw it in the area after Lukasz was found.

Detectives believe the Audi A7, a silver Mercedes Estate and a white Vauxhall Vivaro van are all linked to the case and are now likely to be in the Bristol area.

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.

"Primarily I want to appeal to the witness we believe was in Hyde Lane in Gloucester to come forward. You may have crucial information and it's vital we speak to you.

"Also, we've released an image of the Audi A7 involved in this incident - did you see it in Gloucester on the evening of the incident, particularly in the Hyde Lane, Prince Street and Nettleton Road area between 5.15pm and 5.30pm or have you seen any of the vehicles involved since? 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."
