Gun-wielding "gangsters" who stormed a house in Amersham before firing a shot and attacking the people inside will be deported from the UK after serving time in prison.

Garfield Mushore, 19, of The Foundry, Albert Road, Luton and Krystal Glasgow, also 19, of Holly Drive, Aylesbury, were jailed for a total of 20 years at Aylesbury Crown Court yesterday.

The court heard how at 2.45pm on January 2 this year, Mushore and Glasgow forced their way into a property in Hill Way in Amersham armed with gas guns and a knife.

They attacked the occupants – a 38-year-old woman and two men aged 25 and 45 – before shooting at them and hitting one of them round the head with the gun as well as beating them.

The pair attempted to take a television but failed and then fled the scene.

Mushore was found guilty of one count of aggravated burglary at Aylesbury Crown Court on June 23 and sentenced to 12 years in prison yesterday.

Glasgow pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on March 21 and was sentenced to eight years in jail.

They will both be deported after serving their sentences.  

Investigating officer, Det Sgt Kerry Bradfield from Force CID at Aylesbury said: "The judge described Glasgow and Mushore as "acting like gangsters" as they targeted vulnerable victims.

“It is fortunate that the victims were not more seriously injured, but they were undoubtedly terrified by what happened to them. Violent crime such as this will not be tolerated in the Thames Valley and I am pleased that Mushore and Glasgow are now behind bars."
