Two men have been jailed for a terrifying knife point burglary during which a student was sexually assaulted.

Maslah Hassan, 19 and Mohammed Ali, 22 were both locked up indefinitely by a judge at Blackfriars Crown Court on Friday.

On October 13 they broke in to a flat on the Kilburn High Road, armed themselves with knives before forcing a 23 female occupant to strip naked. She was then sexually assaulted before the two men fled with lap tops and mobile phones. Another occupant was left with cuts after trying to fight off the two men.

Hassan, of Cholmondeley Avenue, Brent was also convicted of a robbery just two hours later. Ali, of Creukhorne Road, was placed on the sex offenders register for life.

Read more on the sentencing of these two men in the Ham&High newspaper on Thursday.
