Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been convicted of assault, robbery and burglary offences in Milton Keynes.
Ross Peters, aged 43, of no fixed abode, was sentenced to four years and six months’ imprisonment at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday (28/11).
He pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on Monday 4 November to one count of robbery, one count of fraud, one count of burglary and one count of assault.
The robbery took place in Breton, Stoney Stratford on 13 September this year when Peters entered a property and the occupant was inside.
After being confronted, Peters left but returned later in the day and took a handbag from the woman, aged 64, from inside the property.
The bank cards from the handbag were used five times that morning in Milton Keynes.
The burglary and assault were in connection with a residential burglary in Alton Gate Westcroft on the 23 September this year.
When Peters was leaving the property he assaulted a woman, aged 26, who was returning to the property.
Thankfully, the victims were not injured during the incidents.
Peters was charged following his arrest on the 24 September.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Matt Acland of Area CID in Milton Keynes, said: “I would like to thank the victims in this case for their support throughout the investigation process.
“The evidence in this case was overwhelming, particularly because of personal CCTV from the victims.
“Peters has been a prolific offender and will now spend time in prison to contemplate his actions.
“Burglary and robbery is treated as a priority by Thames Valley Police and every effort is made to bring offenders to justice through the court process.”
