A London man who carried out two violent burglaries has been jailed for 16 years.
Nyle Ndaliki, aged 29, of Richmond Road, E8 was sentenced at Inner London Crown Court on Wednesday (May 3) after pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated burglary at an earlier hearing at the same venue on 15 March.
The first offence happened on 28 September 2016 at a residential address in Transom Close, SE16 where Ndaliki posed as a delivery driver. Ndaliki – accompanied by a second unidentified man – forced his way into the address when the occupant answered the door. The female victim was threatened with violence and had her hands tied behind her back while the property was searched. However, she managed to break free and flee the property – both men fled the scene with a quantity of property including watches, jewellery and handbags.
Around a week later on 3 October Ndaliki forced his was into a pizza shop in Norwood Road, SE27. Armed with a knife, he threatened two workers after gaining entry via the rear of the shop before stealing money from the till. Ndaliki then fled the premises after smashing a CCTV system inside the venue.
Officers from Lambeth CID launched an investigation and identified Ndaliki as a suspect for both offences – he was arrested and charged with both offences.
PC Katie Ellott led the investigation – she said: “Nyle Ndaliki is a dangerous man who will now spend a significant amount of time behind bars. He used threats and the intimation of violence to terrify his victims and I can only be thankful that none of them were seriously hurt.”
