A BURGLAR has been found guilty of raiding Rita Ora's £2million mansion.

Charaf Elmoudden, 26, went to singer's four-bedroom house in north-west London on November 28.  
Rita and her sister Elena were asleep upstairs at the semi-detached home they share with their parents when two men broke in to the three-storey house.
Elmoudden made off with a stash of expensive shoes, phones, computers and a designer doggy bag. 
The former X Factor judge called the police and said she would "f*** up" the burglar after he woke her sister Elena up rifling through her stuff.

Singer Miss Ora gave evidence from behind a screen during the trial and the court was also played a frantic 999 call from the star.
In it she sobbed "I don't have a knife" and threatened to kill the thieves.
She was heard screaming "Don't you f****** come up these stairs. I will f*** you up – you f****** hear me?" after locking herself in her room with her sister."

Prosecutor Mark Kimsey said her house was deliberately chosen by the thieves because they knew she lived there.
She was not present in court for the verdict but when she previously attended to give evidence she was escorted from the courtroom before putting on a pair of large sunglasses in the foyer and leaving through a back entrance.

Elmoudden has a number of previous convictions.
He also pleaded guilty in 2010 to handling stolen goods in relation to photographs of murdered Rob Knox, who played Marcus Belby in Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince.
The pictures has been taken when he was stabbed outside a bar in Sidcup, south east London, in May 2008.
Elmoudden was found guilty with a majority verdict of 10 to two of burglary at Harrow Crown Court on Wednesday.
The case has been adjourned until 2pm.
