A man who burgled a house just three days after being given a suspended sentence for committing three robberies has been jailed.
On 23 January 2013, Diallo Allen (28/03/1994), of Ploughbank Drive, Chorlton, was given a 15 month sentence, suspended for two years, after pleading guilty to three robberies.
Just days later, between 10pm on 25 January 2013 and 9.30pm the following day, he broke into a house on Westfield Road.
Allen broke in by smashing a window and traces of blood were recovered and sent for forensic analysis. It later came back as a match to Allen.

At Manchester Crown Court Crown Square on Tuesday 26 February 2013, his suspended sentence of 15 months was invoked. He was sentenced to a further two months in a young offenders institute to run consecutively, giving him a total sentence of 17 months.
Detective Constable Rob Southern, said: “When he was sentenced for the robberies, much was made in the media about his change in personal circumstances.
“It was argued that the offending coincided with him moving to the Nell Lane estate area but that argument is insulting to the residents there.
“Allen and Allen alone took the decision to rob three people and after being given a second chance took a decision to break into a house just a couple of days later.”
