Ana Khan, 28, and Tanieka Higgins, 25, held 26-year-old Christopher Pugh hostage for 90 minutes at their shared home.

The victim was finally able to flee the attack after jumping out the window and raising the alarm following the attack on March 14.

Nottingham Crown Court heard that Khan lived in the same shared three-storey house as the victim at the time he was attacked.

She had knocked his room door at around 11am and asked if she could borrow his phone because she had run out of credit.

Mr Pugh gave his phone to Khan and then followed her into her room to collect it.

He was then told by Khan and Higgins that they did not have his phone before becoming aggressive and telling him he would have to buy his phone back.

Prosecutor James Armstrong-Holmes said: “Both defendants told him they did not have his phone.

“They denied having it for 15 minutes. They both became aggressive and said they needed money and that he had to buy his phone back.”

Both woman then pulled out knives and warned Mr Pugh that they would stab him.

Mr Armstrong-Holmes said: “He was frightened and feared he was going to be stabbed.

“They both grabbed his wallet from his jacket, took £40, his house keys, headphones, pouch of tobacco and lighter.

“After he was kept in the room, both women went with him to his room and stole a Pokémon toy and a duck-shaped soap-on-a-rope. He was taken back to Khan’s room.

“They demanded he dance to gangster music.

“They ordered him to twerk and ordered him to dance or ‘this is going into you’ [the knife].”

He eventually managed to flee after jumping out the window before calling the police.

Defending Khan, Gregor Church, said she admitted she had “behaved utterly reprehensibly.”

Judge Jeremy Lea told the pair: “He was, in effect, falsely imprisoned and this was really cruel, bullying behaviour.

“He was humiliated, he was made a figure of fun for your own amusement and then you filmed him.

“Knives were produced by both of you, not just once, but on a number of occasions. His ordeal lasted for about an hour-and-a-half.

“It only came to an end, in that he was so frightened he managed to escape through a window.”

Both woman were jailed for three years each and a five-year restraining order was imposed for the woman to stay away from the victim.
