Who is Reynhard Sinaga?

Reynhard Sinaga is an Indonesian student who lived in Manchester City and the flat that he lived in was used to victimize 195 men. An appeal was launched in 2020, revealed Detective Chief Inspector Zed Ali, who is the Senior Investigating Officer for Operation Island (the name given to the investigative operation). He informed, "It is important we continue to make attempts to trace the around 60 men we believe are victims of Sinaga, but who haven’t made contact with police or support services yet."

He then added, "Our appeal, launched last year, has so far identified 23 further victims of Sinaga. I commend their bravery for getting in touch and the strength and dignity they have shown throughout the past year during our further investigations."

As Sinaga is currently imprisoned for 40 years, many have reportedly not followed up with prosecution, said the chief inspector. He said, "Ultimately, they decided not to pursue further prosecutions given Sinaga is already serving a record sentence for rape offenses, and it will be four decades before he is even considered for release," and added, "That they are satisfied justice has been done is testament to the hard work of our officers, who were able to secure the evidence needed to put Sinaga in prison — where he belongs."

It was revealed that Sinaga would usually spot victims as he stayed in the heart of a very acting clubbing neighborhood. He allegedly mostly picked straight men who visited the clubs and would target men who were alone and drunk in the early hours of the day. He would pose as someone who is looking out for then, and then he would offer a floor to sleep on or a few more drinks before he drugged them and sexually assaulted them. It was also reported that many of his victims do not have a recollection of what exactly took place.

The chief inspector said, "I would urge anyone who thinks they may have been a victim to please get in touch with us. Specialist staff involved in Operation Island remain key members of our force and will continue to investigate any further inquiries that come to light." Ali added, "If you don’t feel comfortable speaking to police, specialist support services are widely available with organizations such as St Mary's SARC and Survivors Manchester."

Sinaga was charged in January 2020, for 40 years as he was found guilty of 159 charges against 48 men who were aged between 17 and 36, and the incidents occurred between January 2015 and June 2017. Judge Suzanne Goddard QC described him as "an evil serial sexual predator" and a "monster" when she had sentenced him at Manchester Crown Court.
