TikToker “Mizzy” has been handed a two-year video ban after posting a "prank" video in which he filmed himself entering a frightened family's home without permission.

The 18-year-old, whose real name is Bacari Ogarro, shared a clip of the May 15 incident online saying: "Walking into random houses, let’s go” before entering an affluent house in Hackney, east London as an alarmed woman asks what he's doing.

She is then heard calling for her partner, who tries to get Mizzy and another person to leave, telling them: "We've got kids."

He then films himself briefly sitting on a sofa before finally leaving.

Ogarro has caused outrage with a number of social media "pranks", including videos in which he appears to run off with a woman's dog, and rip up books in a library.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed in a statement on Monday that Ogarro had been arrested following an investigation into footage shared online.
