Mugshot reveals battered face of UK’s most prolific rapist Reynhard Sinaga after victim lured to his flat fought him off

A MUGSHOT of the UK’s most prolific rapist has shown how he was battered by his final victim after luring him to his flat.

Twisted Reynhard Sinaga was left with two black eyes, bruising to his forehead and had steri strips holding his eyebrows together after one of his victims bravely fought back against him.

The battered and bruised mugshot is from 2017 when Sinaga, 38, was first arrested by Greater Manchester Police.

Images have been released for the first time by GMP ahead of a BBC documentary, Catching a Predator, being aired.

The obsessive rapist attacked more than 200 men, and was jailed for life last year, but he was not caught for more than a decade.

His horrific crimes only came to light after he was found in a pool of blood on the bathroom floor of his apartment on Princess Street, Greater Manchester, in June 2017.

Sinaga arrived in Britain in 2007 to study at Manchester University and was able to remain in higher education thanks to his wealthy father.

Vile Sinaga was beaten so badly by a teenager he had lured back to his flat that medical professionals thought he had a bleed on the brain.

The rugby player managed to escape the property, near to the city’s Gay Village, and called the emergency services to treat his attacker.

Sinaga was captured on CCTV being stretchered from his hope, slipping in and out of consciousness and was rushed to the MRI.

Despite knowing that he had committed horrific rapes against hundreds of men, Sinaga chillingly asked a nurse when he came around if he had been sexually assaulted.

His final victim was the key to unmasking the prolific rapist, who targeted lone men and brought them back to his flat before drugging them with GBH or GBL.

The rapist posed as a Good Samaritan and pretended to help the teenager relocate his friends, but his victim woke in the middle of the attack.

Unlike the other victims he managed to fight back, battering Sinaga and fleeing the property with the rapists phone.

Calling the police the brave victim said: “Hello, I’ve just, I was out last night and then some guy’s took me to his house that I don’t want to take me to, wouldn’t let me leave his house, and he ended up trying to rape me.

“I tried to push him away”, I’ve got blood on me because I tried to hit him to get away from me.

I know it’s violent, but I’ve had to hit him a few times just to, to stop him from attacking me, been on top of me

Sinaga’s final victim

“He’s trapped me in his house for most of the night.

“I’ve had to, I know it’s violent, but I’ve had to hit him a few times just to, to stop him from attacking me, been on top of me.

“I’ve had to. I’ve got blood on my hand if you want to see? Cut, I think he might be busted so, if you have to you might have to phone an ambulance ‘cause I’ve, I’ve had to hit him a few times to get him away from me.”

The teenager was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, but handed police the key to caching Sinaga, his iPhone.

Sinaga filmed the attacks on two mobile phones, and continually gave cops the wrong PIN code for his phones.

But when he eventually gave up the pin he was arrested on suspicion of one count of rape, and was handcuffed to his bed before being discharged and being quizzed by cops two days later.

Twisted Sinaga, known as ‘Rey’ to his friends, kept “trophies” from his victims, such as passports and wallets.


As the sheer magnitude of Sinaga’s offending came to light, detectives had to identify the men in the videos, find them and explain that they believed they had been targeted by the rapist.

One victim, Daniel, from Hastings, only found out what had happened to him when the police showed him the photos taken by Sinaga in 2015.

Speaking about the attack he said: “You can see I am comatose. I look dead. It’s horrible to see.

“I was on a couch, fully clothed when I woke up. I could not remember anything.

“Then I saw someone’s feet walking round and I just froze. I couldn’t explain where I had been to my partner.

“I never thought about reporting it to the police. To say as a man I have been raped is a hard thing.

“It makes you feel so vulnerable.”

Because he did not recall the attack, he had to be tracked down by cops to speak to them about the harrowing incident.

That meant the police had to find him – and that knock on the door is something he will never forget.

Daniel breaks down in tears in the documentary when he recalls the police telling him he’d be raped.

He added: “When the police turned up I could tell from the way she looked at me. I knew she knew.

“There was no denying it was me. You could see my tattoo.

“There is a bit of relief because you know what has happened finally and you can make sense of it but probably not the relief you want.”


When Sinaga was found guilty of 136 rapes and 14 sexual assaults it was the most offences committed by one defendant in British criminal history.

The charges relate to 48 identified men and all took place between January 2015 and May 2017.

But police believe that he could be guilty of assaulting at least 206 victims in his decade-long spree.

Men rarely reported rape attacks so the police didn’t know there was a serial predator in their midst.

Sinaga has been described by one detective as a “narcissist and a psychopath”, and was branded “highly dangerous, cunning and deceitful” by the judge who jailed him.

He is currently serving a 40-year sentence at HMP Wakefield, known as ‘Monster Mansion’ , and was also convicted of eight attempted rapes.

In total, 155 men contacted Greater Manchester Police when details of his crimes became public knowledge back in January 2020.

Of those, 23 have been identified as victims by detectives, and all have not gone ahead with a prosecution as they are satisfied with his current sentence.

Catching a Predator is on BBC2 on Wednesday October 6 at 9pm
