Reynhard Sinaga, a student, has been found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment for raping over 147 young men in Manchester, England.
According to reports, Sinaga, 36, is believed to have abused at least 195 men over two and a half years, after luring them to his flat under the guise of being a “good samaritan”.
His modus operandi was drugging and attacking his victims after they passed out. Only 48 of his victims whose cases were brought to court were not raped.
The suspect has been named as the most prolific rapist ever to be caught in Britain. He was found guilty of 159 counts of sexual offenses against 48 different men.
However, the police believe that his victims are likely to have been more, having found evidence linking him to assaults on as many as 190 different people.
Sinaga would reportedly approach men in the early hours of the morning outside nightclubs in Manchester, then start a conversation with them and afterwards and offer them somewhere to sleep or promise them extra alcohol.
Once they follow him to his flat, he would lace their drinks with drug, most likely GHB.
Afterwards, he would film himself raping the men while they slept. His victims were mostly unaware they had been assaulted.
His abuses were finally discovered in 2017, after an 18-year-old victim woke up at 6.00am while being assaulted.
The victim managed to fight him off, and was able to grab his white Iphone before leaving the apartment.
His victim immediately went to the police with the phone, where they discovered 3.29 terabytes of graphic materials on the phone, which is equivalent to 250 DVDs.
In some cases, the assaults lasted for hours, while one particular assault took place for eight hours.
According to Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service, Sinaga’s victims were usually heterosexual and mostly students. His victims were seen snoring while in some cases, they were vomiting while he raped them.
Police believe that he started the attacks in 2005, and continued up until June 2017.
“His extreme sense of sexual entitlement almost defies belief and he would no doubt still be adding to his staggering tally had he not been caught.”
He would reportedly keep his victims’ belongings as trophies, and would chat the men up on Facebook after assaulting them.
One of his victims said: “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,”
“I want Sinaga to acknowledge what he has done to me and show some remorse, but I doubt that will ever happen.”
The convict, who is originally from Indonesia, was born into a wealthy family.
He was a frequent church goer and studied various university courses while living in Manchester.
He was studying for a PhD at the University of Leeds.
During his sentencing, the Judge said: “It is almost beyond belief that someone who could profess some Christian faith could at the same time have been committing such wicked and evil crimes,”
“You are an evil serial sexual predator who has preyed upon young men who came into the city center wanting nothing more than a good night out with their friends.”
