A lap dancer and her boyfriend were targeted by a violent gang of masked robbers who tied them up and attacked them in their own home.
Julianna Knacz, a dancer at the Red Leopard club in Leeds city centre, had her arms bound with tape and was lead upstairs as her partner Krisztian Sera was kept downstairs and badly beated.
Leeds Crown court heard Mr Sera was punched so hard in the face that three of his teeth shattered.
Miss Knacz was threatened as demands were made for her to hand over gold and cash.
The three men stole over £3,000 worth of cash, jewellery and mobile phones.
The trio then took the keys to the house, on Silk Mill Approach, Cookridge. They told Miss Knacz that they knew that she was a lap dancer at the Red Leopard and they would come looking for her if they went to police. Damien Jozefowski, 30, of Third Avenue, Liversedge, was arrested after he cut his hand during the attack and left blood at the scene,
He was jailed after pleaded guilty to robbery shortly before he was due to stand trial. The court heard the Polish national was going to claim he had been in a sexual relationship with Miss Knacz and she had paid him to carry out the attack on her partner.
The Hungarian couple have moved to their native country since the attack, which took place on April 27 last year.
Det Sgt Ian Lawrence, of North West Leeds Division, said: “This innocent couple were subjected to a prolonged and terrifying attack in their own home, which left them in such fear that they initially fled the country after reporting the matter to the police.
“It is of credit to them that they returned to this country in order that the case could be heard.
“Jozefowski after initially pleading not guilty changed his plea before the start of the trial. This is without doubt due to not only the strength of evidence against him but that the couple attended at court. We think he was relying on them not turning up.
“He has refused to name his accomplices.”
