DC Andy Gray said: "This incident left the victim understandably shaken - it must have been extremely unsettling to wake up in your own home with a stranger shouting at you and attacking you.

“I am pleased that Grimshaw is behind bars where he belongs."

Grimshaw pleaded guilty to burglary and assault occasioning actual bodily harm at Sheffield Crown Court on October 20.

He was sentenced to five years and eight months in prison.
