A teenager has been jailed for 12 years after raping a 15-year-old girl at knifepoint in Newcastle.
Abdul Miah, aged 19, from Elswick, Newcastle, told his victim he would kill her if she fought back.
The attack took place in December last year, when the girl was raped on an area of waste ground between Park Close and Gloucester Terrace in Elswick.
The girl was making her way home from a youth club.
