Britain’s most prolific rapist with nearly 200 victims is jailed for 30 years

The UK’s most prolific serial rapist has been jailed for at least 30 years after drugging 48 men and filming himself attacking them as they lay unconscious in his city centre apartment.

Reynhard Sinaga, 36, has been linked to more than 190 potential victims – 70 of whom police have yet to identify.

He prowled the streets of Manchester in the early hours hunting for lone, drunk young men around the nightclubs near his flat.

The student offered his Victims a floor to sleep on or the promise of more booze before lacing their drinks with the drug (GHB).

Many of his victims left his flat unaware they’d even been attacked, jurors at Manchester Crown Court were told.

He was caught when one of the men regained consciousness and fought him off before snatching his phone and later handing it to police.

Today he was jailed for life with a minimum term of 30 years.

Judge Suzanne Goddard QC told him: ‘You are an evil serial sexual predator who has preyed upon young men who came into the city centre wanting nothing more than a good night out with their friends.

‘One of your victims described you as a monster. The scale and enormity of your offending confirms this as an accurate description.’

The judge said: ‘Rarely, if ever, have the courts seen such a campaign of rape as this, covering so many victims over a prolonged period.’

She told the court the true scale of Sinaga’s offending may never be known but that police appeared to have established 195 men were filmed by the defendant while unconscious.

Judge Goddard added: ‘It is ironic that were it not for the films that you took of your evil crimes it seems that most of these offences would not have even been discovered, let alone prosecuted. ‘Your actions show you as a dangerous individual with no sense of reality.

‘In my judgment you are a highly dangerous, cunning and deceitful individual who will never be safe to be released.’

The Indonesian national has now been found guilty of a total of 159 offences committed between January 2015 and May 2017.

They include 136 counts of rape, 13 counts of sexual assault, eight counts of attempted rape and two counts of assault by penetration.
