The trial of a Colchester man accused of attempting to abduct four schoolgirls will take place in February.

Before Ipswich Crown Court today (Friday) was Piotr Gromczewski, 38, of Bergholt Road, who pleaded not guilty to four offences of attempting to abduct a child under 16 on September 3 and four offences of causing or inciting the same four 14-year-old girls to engage in sexual activity, namely the removal of his body hair with wax.

Gromczewski also denied a charge of causing a public nuisance on September 3 by approaching female members of the public and trying to persuade them to remove his body hair with wax, trying to persuade them to accompany him to his car and to accompany him to his house.

His trial is expected to take place on February 26.

Gromczewski was arrested on September 4 after police received reports that girls had been allegedly approached by a man in the Monkwick area of Colchester.
