Two men have today been jailed for a combined time of 14 years for attacking and a keeping a man hostage in his North Reddish home.

21-year-old Ryan Patton, from Brinnington, pleaded guilty to burglary, robbery, false imprisonment and assault and was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison.

His partner in crime, 19-year-old Kyle Bond from North Reddish, pleaded guilty to theft, possession of a Class B drug and aggravated vehicle taking. He was jailed for five and a half years.

The two men first robbed their 25-year-old victim at 8pm on Friday 1st July 2016 outside McColls in Mersey Square, Stockport. Patton stole £20 while Bond threatened the victim before the pair ran off.

Later that same evening, the victim spotted Patton and Bond near Stockport Bus Station and asked for his money back. The pair threatened him and insisted they go to his flat.

Once inside, Patton pulled a knife on the victim while Bond tied him to a radiator. Patton then threatened and attacked the victim before they ransacked his house and stole his car. When they crashed the car in Brinnington a short time later, they were both arrested.

Thankfully, their victim managed to escape from his house and made his way to hospital.

Speaking about the horrific ordeal, Detective Constable Jane Dodd of GMP’s Stockport Borough, said: “This victim was subjected to a horrific and prolonged attack in his own home, which is somewhere he should feel safe.

“The level of violence used was abhorrent and both men are now behind bars for their actions.”
