A homeless asylum seeker raped a terrified 15-year-old girl in the alleyway he was sleeping in.

Muhammed Umar grabbed the schoolgirl in Narborough Road, Leicester , and threatened “something bad” would happen if she did not follow him.

She was overpowered and forced to have sex on a mattress in a passageway, off a side street where he was sleeping rough.

The 23-year-old had denied rape but was convicted unanimously by a jury at Leicester Crown Court .

The asylum seeker arrived in the UK 5 years ago
