A teenager has admitted raping a 15-year-old girl at knifepoint in Elswick.
19 year old Abdul Miah, 19, from Hull Street, Elswick, Newcastle, appeared at the city's Crown Court via video-link and pleaded guilty to three counts of rape and one of robbery.
He attacked his victim on waste ground in Elswick, in Newcastle's West End, on December 18th.
He denied kidnap, false imprisonment, making threats to kill and having an offensive weapon but admitted carrying a bladed article.
Judge James Goss, the Recorder of Newcastle, will sentence him next month.
