“Take a sip of my secret poison, I’ll make you fall in love.”
Reynhard Sinaga sent this chilling message to friends a few hours after he drugged and raped a man.
Seemingly oblivious to his horrible crimes, his friends believed that Sinaga was a lothario.
The messages shared in a group of WhatsApp, a few hours after the protracted attack, implied that Sinaga had convinced yet another “other” straight man to join him in bed.
In fact, she had raped him.
The 21-year-old victim was one of the dozen drunk and vulnerable youths that Sinaga has been preying on for over two years.
The cowardly predator would start talking to young people who had been isolated from their friends outside some of Manchester’s busiest spots.
He would have attracted them to his apartment where he had drugged them, made vile rapes and sexual assaults and filmed the meetings on the iPhone.
Each of the 48 victims was unaware that she had been raped or sexually assaulted until police knocked on the door years later.
Police believe the real death toll is closer to 195, making Sinaga the most prolific rapist in British judicial history.
The extraordinary case led to Sinaga’s life imprisonment after being found guilty of sexual offenses in four separate trials.
however, the Manchester evening news he can now reveal the details of the sick phone messages Sinaga sent to his friends in the wake of two of his attacks.
These sinister messages give a grim view of the sexual predator mentality.
In a WhatsApp chat, Sinaga told a friend that he would soon live alone.
“You can join so many straight guys, honey,” replied a friend.
Sinaga replied: “Hahahah”.
“You mean like this?”, Before sending photographs of a victim who had taken, hours earlier, while the young man was unconscious.
His friend – who the police believed was unaware of Sinaga’s crime at the time – replied, “Hahahahaha.
“There is always a new one.”
After having drugged and raped the 21-year-old man a few hours earlier, the rapist explains how the young man had left the car outside the city and so remained with him.
Sinaga says: “He is silly, like typical kids” and then adds: “He has a delightful southern male accent”
The friend seems impressed and says to Sinaga: “Fuck the hell darling, you get a difference every week”
To which the rapist replies: “Black Magic” and “Manchester is a magical city”.
He adds: “City of gay romanticism.
“City of gay loooooove.”
Later, another friend joins the chat and says, “Black magic yes! Rey makes a potion to drink gay love haha. “
To which his first friend replied: “I know”.
“I want the formula”
Sinaga then, with a cold idea, considering his use of the knockout drugs GHB and GBL, refers to a pop song by the Little Mix group and writes: “Take a sip of my secret poison, I’ll make you fall in love. “
His friend replies: “I wanted to catch the straight guy last weekend so badly. Ha ha ha ha “
To which Sinaga replies: “A drop should be enough.”
Prosecutor Iain Simkin – who acted for the prosecutor in all four trials – described these messages as “breathtaking”.
“He’s admitting what he’s doing there,” he told a jury. “He is bragging.
“It’s amazing that not only is he committing these crimes and filming these crimes, he prides himself on these crimes.”
But it was not the first time that Sinaga boasted of friends about his so-called conquests.
A few months earlier he had told his friend about his experience with another young man.
“Well, he was straight until we woke up naked,” he wrote in a text message.
“I didn’t receive my New Year’s kiss, but I already had my first sex in 2015.”
The “sex” Sinaga was referring to was actually two rapes, carried out in his apartment in central Manchester in the early hours of the first year of 2015.
“I met him in the factory next to my building. Straight, 22 years old, plays football and works in the club ******* “.
“He was straight in 2014. 2015 is his turning point in the gay world hahaha.”
This messaging scheme continued, and later that month Sinaga spoke again to the friends of one of the men he had raped.
The messages retrieved from his phone described a meeting with a student.
“Sir,” he wrote.
“Some drama made us completely awake lol.
“I had a 19-year-old guy last night who went out with his annoying girlfriend.”
He adds: “He kept yelling at him on the phone too.”
Sinaga says his victim turned off the phone and “we had a little fun” when he actually drugged and raped him.
“But this morning we found out that his girlfriend called the whole world to disappear,” he says.
“Your friend, your mother, the police …”
To which his friend replies: “Run dear race. They will come after you. “
Sinaga replies: “Her mother has almost cried. The police had to see him in front of my apartment because they thought he was forced to lol. “
Later in the conversation Sinaga describes listening to the victim’s girlfriend as “incredibly horrible” and sends a photograph of the victim to his friend.
“He was such a good boy, calm and adorable,” he wrote.
“He deserves a better girl … O boy haha.
“First timer, yes.”
His friend replies, “He got you a consolation prize, honey.”
And Sinaga says, “Yes. He came to the right person hahaha. “
Later he adds: “Oh dear. Drama, drama, drama. I feel sorry for him. 🙁 “
Another friend joins the conversation and asks if Sinaga met the student on Grindr.
He says, “I can finally see the inside of Rey’s room, I’ve always been forbidden to go behind the magic door haha.”
Sinaga writes: “You saw it! Lol. “
To which the friend replies: “Briefly! Haha. You always screamed “nooo it’s too messy!” Then we were joking, a male corpse was piling up under the bed, haha ”.
Sinaga replies “Hahahahahha.
“Actually, a decent sanctuary for heterosexual guys. They hide in my closet. “
Later in the conversation Sinaga writes: “He was telling me about discussions with his girlfriend.
“That he was fed up and needs to escape lol.
“Yes, for the rescue.
“SuperRey rescues straight guys from their monstrous girlfriend.”
To which his friend replies: “Robin Hood: stealing from the ladder to give gays haha.”
The following day the victim revisited Montana House with his girlfriend so that Sinaga could explain how he spent the night in his apartment.
At the time, the young student had no idea that Sinaga had raped him or filmed the attacks,
After telling the couple that she had helped the victim in her apartment and let him sleep there, Sinaga turned to her WhatsApp group to talk to her friends.
He wrote: “Sir.
“I had a surprise visit.
“The boyfriend’s girl from last weekend lol.”
He adds: “Yes. So many dramas! But they look adorable.
“He wanted to meet me.
“So they knocked from door to door in my building lol.
“Just to find me. How sweet!”
Then he sends photos of the victim, says he is “only 19” and writes: “His relationship with a gay boy, me, only 16 hahhaahha”.
To which his friend replies: “Always flirt with these young boys.
Another friend joins the conversation and asks, “But doesn’t she know you slept with him?
“Didn’t want revenge ??? Lol.”
To which Sinaga replies: “We haven’t talked about it, so I assume he doesn’t know it,” and adds: “They were fighting that night. He told her he was with his friend. I think he just wanted to show that he wasn’t lying”
Later she adds: “The girl looked adorable but she is too good for her.”
So he claims to have met her earlier and claims to have “added” the couple as friends on Facebook.
The rapist later says to his friends: “The boy is too good. He is calm, always relaxes and listens
“He deserves a better girl like me hahahah.”
Sinaga continued to deny any wrongdoing and conducted four trials at Manchester Crown Court.
He still claims that each of his victims had consensual sex with him, agreed to film and willingly participated in a sex game in which they pretended to sleep as part of his fantasy.
It was a notion that prosecutors dismissed as nonsense.
All four juries agreed unanimously.
