BANGOR — A 46-year-old Bangor man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for two home invasions.

Dennis Wood was sentenced today in the Penobsot County Judicial Center for attempting to break into a Bangor home in December when he and another man knocked on a door and asked for help, telling the homeowner their car had broken down. He pleaded guilty to robbery and aggravated assault charges in December.

In another case, Wood was sentenced Tuesday in Somerset County Superior Court to 19½ years in prison after pleading guilty to breaking into an elderly woman’s home in Palmyra, demanding money and stealing $5,000 in cash before tying her up and leaving.

The Bangor Daily News says the sentences will be served concurrently.
