A man who spent three years on the run after raping a sex worker at knifepoint has been jailed for eight years.

Miroslav Cicak, 24, attacked the woman in the Girlington area of Bradford in April 2014, forcing her to perform a sex act on him.

He then fled the country and was not arrested until August 2017 when he was discovered living in Germany.

Cicak, of Stubley Lane, Dronfield, was found guilty of rape after a trial at Leeds Crown Court.
