On April 1st (of all days) just before dinner time, Jay Georgiou and an unidentified assailant broke into the flat of three men based in Tenterden Close, Eastbourne. The pair of criminals had weapons, tying up the residents of the flat, demanding drugs and money.
19-year-old Georgiou had enough class during this time to take a call from his probation officer, discussing a missed appointment. The victims kept quite during the phone call, but the criminal pair didn't notice that the residents of the flat they broke into were playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 online with a friend in Brighton at the time.
The friend was able to hear everything that was happening in his friends flat, so he contacted the authorities. Less than two hours after Georgiou broke into the flat, he was arrested by police. The second assailant has yet to have been apprehended, but is said to be a white male between the ages of 20 and 25, with ginger hair. He was wearing a ski mask or balaclava at the time of the incident. Georgiou was sentenced to eight years in prison, and was ordered to pay £120, or $204 in damages.
