A man has been jailed for more than two years for burglary and assault.
Neville Carnegie, 45 and of Du Cane Road in London, appeared at Southampton Crown Court last week in connection to an incident in June 2021.
Carnegie, who pleaded guilty to one charge of burglary and two charges of assault, was handed a sentence of two years and five months.
The court heard how Carnegie travelled with family to the New Forest on June 18 last year.
He was drinking and when his sister tried to drive him home he jumped out of the car and ran into the forest.
He broke into a house in Lyndhurst and assaulted the homeowners, both aged in their 50s, before stealing a set of keys to a vehicle.
PSI Stephen Hortin of the Operation Hawk burglary investigation team said: "Carnegie made all sorts of threats and claims to the victims, causing them to be utterly terrified.
"Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary will not stand by and allow that to happen. This is Carnegie's third conviction for a dwelling burglary and he is now where he deserves to be."
