Three men from Bangor have been jailed for 26 years between them after being convicted of a robbery in which they carried imitation firearms and attacked a man in his own home.
Caernarfon Crown Court heard that Ricky Lloyd, 25 and Terrence Lloyd, 26, inflicted the violence, and were masked when they carried out the attack.
The third man, 34-year-old Andrew Bain, wasn't disguised so the victim would open the door to someone he recognised.
Ricky Lloyd, of Llys Bedwyr, was jailed for nine years for the robbery and must serve 12 months behind bars consecutively after he admitted burgling a Bangor flat.
Terrence Lloyd, of Ffordd Tan y Bryn, was imprisoned for nine years, while Bain, of Trem y Garnedd, was jailed for eight.
Judge Niclas Parry said it had been a premeditated armed robbery involving a group attack, and that for a time the victim had believed they were real firearms.
