A man who threatened a woman during a burglary in Stockport has been jailed for four years
Matthew Bayley aged 29 broke into the property on Sandy Lane in the Romiley area back in September.
Confronted by the women he told her to put her hands behind her back and get on the floor. He threatened her by saying, if she didn’t, he would tie her up or attack her.
Bayley stole jewellery and two car keys before fleeing the scene.
In the time that followed, he was arrested and questioned by detectives.
Detective Constable Laura Burgess, of GMP’s Stockport division, said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the woman involved so I’m pleased with today’s result.
“No one should be made to feel as if their homes are not safe and, therefore, I hope today’s result provides a measure of comfort to those affected by this case.
“Crimes of this nature will not be tolerated across Greater Manchester and, please let it be known, if you are thinking of taking part in this type of criminal activity you will be brought to justice.”
