Two men from Brent who carried out an armed burglary in Tottenham where a gun was held to a woman’s head have been jailed.
Rodville Anthony Lloyd, 62, of Dagmar Avenue, Wembley, and Jermaine Garfield Mitchell, 39, of Avenue Road, Stonebridge, teamed up with Sacha Corsini, 40, from Shepherd’s Bush, to storm the victim’s house on May 21 this year.
The terrified woman heard the trio breaking in and as she called the police they burst into her bedroom.
Lloyd disconnected the call and held a gun to her head demanding money.
Corsini and Mitchell managed to flee before the police arrived and Lloyd was arrested at the scene.

Last week at Wood Green Crown Court all three pleaded guilty.
Lloyd was jailed for 11 years and Mitchell and Corsini were sentenced to 10.
Det Con Pembe Rayif, investigating officer, said: “This was an extremely terrifying ordeal for the victim in her own home and I hope she can draw some form of closure from the sentence and feel safe that the perpetrators are now in prison.
“The use of firearms will not be tolerated and I hope the sentence imposed gives a clear message to those members of the community who believe it is acceptable to carry and use firearms, and that it will reassure Haringey community of our ability to bring those involved in gun crime before the courts.”
