Aldwick man charged through Operation Accent remains in custody

A 43-year-old Aldwick man charged with causing ABH and GBH remains in custody after three unsuccessful attempts to get bail.

Witold Olczyk, a driver from Stanmore Gardens, is awaiting trial following the alleged offences in Nyewood Lane, Bognor Regis, on February 27.

He was remanded in custody on June 19 after an appearance at Worthing Magistrates’ Court and made his latest unsuccessful bail application on Tuesday (July 3).

Bognor-based Sgt Rachel Glenton, who heads Sussex Police’s Operation Accent community team, said: “The prosecution of Olczyk results from proactive police enquiries carried out during Operation Accent, the multi-agency initiative aimed at cutting crime and reducing vulnerability among the Eastern European community across Arun District.

“If anyone from this community has been a victim of a crime but has concerns about coming forward and speaking to the police then we would like to reassure them that they will be treated with the utmost sensitivity and professionalism.”
