A "dangerous" Dalston man who carried out two violent burglaries has been jailed for 16 years.
Inner London Crown Court heard how Nyle Ndaliki, 29, of Richmond Road, Dalston, posed as a delivery driver last September.
When a woman opened the door to her home in Surrey Quays he forced his way in with an “unidentified” accomplice, police said.
The woman was threatened with violence and had her hands tied behind her back while they ransacked her home.
She managed to break free and fled, and both men escaped with her valuables including watches, jewellery and handbags.
A week later Ndaliki was armed with a knife when he forced his way through the back door of a pizza shop in Tulse Hill, Scotland Yard said.
He threatened two workers and stole money from the till, smashing the CCTV system before he fled.
He was sentenced yesterday after pleading guilty to aggravated burglary in March.
Pc Katie Ellott from Lambeth CID who led the investigation 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.”
