Two men, who threatened victims with a gun and knives during an aggravated burglary, have been jailed for a combined 17 years.

Paul Komati, 22, of Serpentine Court, Bletchley (left) and Danyle Smith, 21, of Hayman Rise, Grange Farm (right), were sentenced at Amersham Crown Court on Monday, after being found guilty of aggravated burglary following a trial.

Komati was jailed for nine years and Smith for eight years and six months.

At about 8.30pm on April 22, Komati and Smith were among a group of men to go into a house in North Ninth Street and assault and threaten two men.

The victims, who were in their 20s, were threatened with knives and a handgun. They suffered minor injuries.

The offenders left with a number of electrical items, including mobile phones and games consoles.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Barbara Dragt, said: “I am very pleased with the outcome and the sentences given to both Komati and Smith.

“The victims went through a terrible ordeal which has had a major impact on their lives and I hope this conclusion will enable them to feel that justice has been done.”
