Yesterday two men were sentenced for their parts in a burglary at a house on Kingston Street in Goole on 2 June 2019.
Sven Eric Isle (34) of Morley Street, Old Goole, pleaded guilty to the burglary and to assaulting a police officer during his arrest. He was sentenced to eight years and four months in prison.
Lee Harrison (39) of Station Road, Rawcliffe, pleaded guilty to burglary and to handling stolen goods. He received a prison sentence of six years and seven months. Lee Harrison was arrested following further investigation into the Kingston Street burglary, and following his arrest a stolen pedal cycle from another incident was located at his house. He was arrested and charged with handling stolen goods in relation to the bicycle as well as the Kingston Street burglary.
Investigating the case was PC Richard Sherburn, he said, “The young 19 year-old woman who was the victim in this case, as in bed asleep when intruders broke into her home and threatened her as she lay in bed.
“The severity of the impact that this has had on her was recognised by the courts with these two strong sentences and we hope that they give her the peace of mind to allow her to move on from the ordeal.”
