Battered face of UK’s worst rapist after one of his 200 victims fought back
This is the battered and bruised face of the UK’s most prolific serial rapist after one of his drugged victims woke up and fought back.
A never-seen-before mugshot shows Reynhard Sinaga, 38, with two black eyes and bruising across his face.
The monster prowled the streets of Manchester hunting for lone drunk men and is believed to have attacked more than 200, remaining undetected for a decade.
Posing as a good Samaritan, he would offer them a place to sleep – before slipping GHB into their drinks and filming himself taking advantage of them.
Many victims left his flat unaware they had been raped – but his evil crimes came to light when one victim woke up with him on top of them.
He beat Sinaga off before snatching the predator’s phone and fleeing.
The victim’s 999 call triggered an astonishing investigation that resulted in Sinaga being jailed for a minimum of 40 years after being convicted of 159 sexual offences.
The truth came to light when police discovered horrific videos and images of the attacks on his phone.
One victim has spoken out about the horror of realising what had happened to him when he was shown photographs of himself in Sinaga’s apartment by police.
A man named Daniel has waived his anonymity – the first of Sinaga’s victims to do so – for BBC Two documentary Catching a Predator.
He woke up not knowing where he was after going to the toilet in an alleyway while on a night out for his birthday in Manchester back in 2015.
Daniel said: ‘Then I saw someone’s feet walking round and I just froze. And then they left the room and I just got up and ran out the door.’
Speaking of the moment he was shown the images, he said: ‘It is just horrible to see yourself that vulnerable in photographs that someone else has taken. You can see I am comatose… I look dead.’
Daniel has spoken out in the hope of helping other victims, saying ‘to say as a man I have been raped is a hard thing’.
Det Sgt Kimberley Hames-Evans, who worked on the investigation, says watching footage of victims being sexually abused was ‘horrendous’.
Part of her job was to travel across UK, and overseas, to tell victims what had happened to them – in the knowledge that it would ‘ruin their lives’.
She said: ‘They just went very quiet and you [could] see the colour drain from their face. Just an “oh my God’ look on their face.”.’
