He admitted burglary and was jailed for three years, nine months at Nottingham crown court.
Det Sgt Franco Guddemi said: “Committing another burglary while still having prison release documents in his bag shows the sort of prolific, career criminal he is.”
Detective Sergeant Franco Guddemi, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Committing another burglary while still having prison release documents in his bag shows the sort of prolific, career criminal we are dealing with.
“I am pleased with the sentence handed down to Ahmed and it sends another strong message that this sort of offending will never be tolerated by the force.”
The court heard how one of the students had left the kitchen area inside the flats and tried to return to his room when he heard a man’s voice inside.
He tried to open his door but the person inside pushed it shut and locked the door from inside.
After about a minute, Ahmed, of no fixed abode, emerged into the corridor holding a rucksack where he was then confronted by several students.
He pushed past them and was verbally abusive before the offender lost one of his false teeth during the struggle that ensued.
Another student grabbed Ahmed’s rucksack and when they searched the bag they found two laptop computers, a charger and aftershave, as well as the personal information revealing his identity.
