The victims of Britain’s most prolific rapist Reinhard Sinaga were not known until the police showed them videos and photos of his sickening.
A man attacked by an Indonesian student in Manchester says he was so drunk he looked ‘dead’ in a snap.
In the shocking footage, Sinaga is seen raping a drunk man in her flat – taking it in turns to attack them.
Most of his victims were straight students who were completely blacked out as GHB sneaked up to him which was so strong.
Twisted Synaga kept “trophies” such as passports and purses from his victims.
When Sinaga was found guilty of 136 rapes and 14 sexual assaults in January 2020, it was the most offenses committed by a defendant in British criminal history.
But now investigators fear the 38-year-old PhD student’s humiliation was much worse than that and that he may actually be “the world’s worst rapist.”
60 attacks in a year
A BBC2 documentary titled Catching a Predator reveals that data recovered from Sinaga’s electronic equipment shows she hunted at least 60 men every year from 2014 until her arrest in June 2017.
Before that, detectives fear he attacked between 15 and 20 men each year, with crimes potentially stretching back to 2007.
Sinaga’s crimes were only alleged to date.
He was jailed in 2020 after four separate trials and is serving a 40-year prison sentence.
There was video on video of youths being sexually abused and raped
Detective Sergeant Kimberly Hyams-Evans said: “The content of the phone was horrific, containing video of young men sexually assaulted and raped.”
Sinaga arrived in the UK in 2007 to study at the University of Manchester and was able to continue in higher education thanks to his wealthy father.
The men rarely reported rape attacks, so police did not know that there was a serial stalker among them.
His crimes came to light only when one of the victims put up a fight.
Synaga is nearly unconscious as a teenage rugby player beats Synaga to escape a rapist’s flat on Princes Street in central Manchester, not far from the city’s Gay Village.
After escaping the man called emergency services, who arrived to find the student on the floor with blood all around him.
DI Matt Gregory, the first detective at the scene, says the rapist was “barely conscious, with the suspect’s facial fracture in a pool of blood”.
Sinaga’s victim was arrested for assault.
Fortunately, Sinaga’s mobile phone was found under her bed and the contents told DI Gregory “we had the culprit”.
i’m a terrible person
When the detective saw the images, Sinaga exclaimed: “I am a terrible person.”
But she denied any crime after Sinaga was arrested on rape charges.
The hunt for synaga speaks bravely
It was only by retrieving data from multiple devices that the police were able to photograph his crime and make contact with his victims.
Daniels of Hastings only found out what had happened to her when the police showed her pictures taken by Synaga.
He says: “You can see that I have fainted. I look dead It’s terrifying to see”.
Daniel had slipped into an alley to relieve himself after the night of his birthday in 2015 and the next thing he remembered was waking up in Sinaga’s flat.
He recalls: “I was on a couch, fully clothed when I woke up. I didn’t remember anything.
“Then I saw someone’s legs moving and I froze.”
Bewildered and bewildered, Daniel grabbed his luggage and ran away without waiting to find out what had happened.
When he gets home, he tells his partner: “I can’t explain where I was”.
I never thought of reporting it to the police
Not knowing whether he was attacked, he says: “I never thought of reporting it to the police.”
“As a man it is difficult to say that I have been raped.
“It makes you feel so insecure.”
This meant the police had to find him – and that door knocking is something he’ll never forget.
The documentary brings tears to Daniel’s eyes as he recalls to the police that he would be raped.
He says: “When the police came, I could tell how they looked at me. I knew she knew.
“There was no denying that it was me. You could see my tattoo.”
“There’s a bit of relief because you know what’s finally happened and you can understand it but maybe not the relief you want,” he says.
Sinaga’s victims had no chance against him because the sedative he had given them was so powerful.
They often remained cold for several hours.
Taking to the streets for the victims
Sinaga will follow Princess Street, a party area, looking for men who are drunk or in need of help.
He’ll just roam the streets for his next victim
DS Hyams-Evans said: “We realized he was a hunter. He would simply hit the streets for his next hunt.”
He will be “polite” and offer to call them a cab from their flat or have them charge their phone.
Detectives found empty vodka and rum bottles in Sinaga’s flat along with lots of driver’s licenses and passports.
Detective Constable Dorothy Orr says: “It’s like a force. Trophies.”
Sinaga cried during the police interrogation, but detectives thought it might have been a bid for sympathy.
DC Orr says: “Until you meet Reinhardt Sinaga, you won’t believe the level of manipulation he’s capable of.”
Daniels says she was offered counseling “but nothing has been as helpful as talking to my dad”.
“Men don’t talk about male rape but their reaction was amazing,” she said.
