A 20-year-old Berwyn man was sentenced to 16 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple felonies related to a 2012 Palatine home invasion and robbery, court records show.

Nicholas Anderson's sentence Thursday followed guilty pleas to home invasion, armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping, with the sentences running concurrently.

Anderson, who received credit for 235 days in custody, must complete at least 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.

Police say a 46-year-old woman entered her home the morning of Sept. 26, 2012, and confronted Anderson and another man armed with handguns. The men tied her up, stole property and left in her 2009 Cadillac Escalade, police said. The vehicle's On-Star system led police to the car, which had been abandoned on West Monroe Street in Chicago, authorities said.
