A man who forced his way into his ex’s flat and kidnapped at knifepoint the man he found there has been jailed.

Mustafa Kiziltan, 27, of Well Street, south Hackney, broke into his former partner’s flat in Tottenham in the early hours of February 24, along with two other men.

They verbally abused the woman, before spraying a noxious liquid into the face of a 21-year-old man who was also in the flat.

They then partially stripped him and threatened him with knives, before they took him outside and tried to force him into a car.

The man managed to escape and flagged down a police car that had already been called to the address. The ordeal lasted about 20 minutes.

Kiziltan was arrested four days later but the other two men have not been identified.

He was found guilty of kidnap and jailed for four years on Monday following a trial at Wood Green Crown Court.
