A MAN wanted for stabbing two brothers in a Polish nightclub may be hiding in Scotland, police believe.

Lukasz Wyrzykiewicz, 30, is one of 18 foreign suspects identified in a new appeal.

They are all believed to be hiding in the UK and pose a potential danger to their surrounding communities.

Wyrzykiewicz is wanted by Polish authorities for stabbing of two brothers in a nightclub in 2009.

After the attack, the brothers were pushed down a set of stairs. Both suffered severe injuries.

Wyrzkiewicz has links to Glasgow, as well as parts of London and Thames Valley.

Detective Sergeant Peter Rance, leading Operation Sunfire 3, said: “Today I’m asking the public, do you recognise these faces? Maybe you know where these people live, work or 
socialise?

“They are wanted to face justice for a multitude of crimes in other countries and it is in 
the UK’s interests to help find them.”

The 18 suspected criminals are all high-risk offenders, and include two alleged gunmen who fatally shot their victims, a suspected violent abductor and a man wanted for the rape of a teenager.

They are wanted by other European authorities but are believed to be hiding out in the UK in areas including London, Greater Manchester and Glasgow, in an attempt to evade prosecution.

Roger Critchell, director of operations for Crimestoppers added: “We want these criminals off British soil and back to the countries where they have committed these heinous crimes so that justice may be served.”
