UK rapist who raped over 130 men, jailed for life

A rapist in the United Kingdom, UK who was convicted of 159 sex offences, including 136 rapes, has been jailed for life as the judge mentioned that he will “never be safe to be released”.

The man identified as Reynhard Sinaga was found guilty of luring 48 men from outside Manchester clubs to his flat, where he drugged and assaulted them – filming the attacks, The BBC reports.

UK rapist who raped over 130 men, jailed for life

Police say they have evidence Sinaga, 36, who is being named for the first time, targeted at least 190 victims.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said Sinaga was “the most prolific rapist in British legal history”.

The judge ruled his life sentence must include a minimum of 30 years in jail.

Sinaga, 36, approached men in the early hours of the morning outside nightclubs in Manchester, striking up a conversation and offering them somewhere to sleep or promising them more alcohol.

Once he had brought them to his flat he would lace their drink with a drug — most likely GHB, police said — then film himself raping them while they slept. His comatose victims were unaware they had been assaulted.

Sinaga’s attacks only came to light in 2017, after an 18-year-old victim woke up at 6 a.m. while being assaulted. The victim managed to fight him off, and crucially was able to grab Sinaga’s white iPhone before leaving the apartment.

He went to police, who discovered 3.29 terabytes of graphic material on Sinaga’s phone — the equivalent to 250 DVDs. In some cases the assaults lasted hours, with one particular attack taking place for eight hours, CNN reports.
Sinaga’s victims, who were usually heterosexual and were often students, were seen snoring and in some cases vomiting while Sinaga raped them, Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service said. When a groggy victim was starting to wake, Sinaga would push them back to the floor to continue his assault, or snatch away his phone to avoid suspicion.
His victims recounted that they rarely felt threatened by Sinaga, who had a slight build, according to the PA Media news agency. One victim said he seemed “really nice” and thought he had merely looked after him after his phone died and he had been separated from his friends on a night out.
“That night was just like any night out with my mates. What I didn’t know was that there was a monster lurking in the background waiting to take advantage of my drunken state,” PA quoted one victim as saying. “I want Sinaga to acknowledge what he has done to me and show some remorse, but I doubt that will ever happen.”
Sinaga claimed in court that the men he attacked had in fact consented to have sex with him, and were pretending to be unconscious to fulfill his fantasy. Prosecutors branded that defense “preposterous,” PA reported.
In court, he claimed victims had individually lied to police in order to not be outed as gay. “It is not an easy thing for some people to come out as gay. That has probably influenced the way they want to answer it,” PA quoted him as saying.
