The attack took place on March 10 last year after Brown approached the teen and ordered her to follow him down the alleyway with the suggestion he was carrying a weapon.
Terrified, the girl followed him and was subsequently raped.
The Sun reports that Brown left £10 for the victim as he left the scene.
A nearby witness captured the incident on their mobile phone after being alarmed to hear screams and cries before discovering the attack.
The witness called the police and comforted the victim until authorities arrived – with Brown arrested nearby soon after.
Brown was sentenced to nine years in prison and four years on license on Thursday after being found guilty of rape and sexual activity with a child.
Kerry McNulty, from the CPS, said: "This was a horrific sexual attack in broad daylight on a child in school uniform.
"The prosecution case included CCTV evidence of Brown in the vicinity and mobile phone footage of the attack itself. The young victim was also able to pick out her attacker during an identity parade.
"Brown has shown no remorse and subjected his victim to the ordeal of going through a trial despite the overwhelming evidence against him.
"Throughout proceedings, Brown claimed he had been a victim of mistaken identity, but the jury decided otherwise."
They went on: "The young victim in this case has shown immense courage by coming to court to give evidence against her attacker, and I hope this conviction goes some way in helping her move forward in her life."
The court also awarded £800 to the witness who came to the aid of the teen.
