Robber jailed after break-in was transmitted via Xbox

A robber has been jailed for eight years after his break-inwas transmitted by a games console.

Jay Georgiou, 19, was one of a pair of robbers who burst into a flat in Tenterden Close, Eastbourne, and demanded that the three men inside give them money and drugs.

The victims had been playing the Xbox game Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 online with a friend who was in Brighton when the robbers entered the flat, shortly before 5pm on April 1.

Georgiou, who was wearing a crash helmet, hit one of the men over the head with what appeared to be a handgun and the second man grabbed a knife from the kitchen before they tied up the residents and threatened to shoot or stab them unless they gave them drugs and money.
