A month later, on December 10, Da Silvaneto targeted his second victim, another man.

The victim was enjoying a night out at a bar in Chelsea, London.

Leaving the bar, the victim tried to organize a taxi, when she met Da Silvaneto who was driving a vehicle in the neighborhood.

The victim cannot remember any other details about the rest of the evening, other than being forced to consume a small drink.

When the victim awoke the following day, she was at an unknown property, which Thames Valley Police later established was the same property in Middle Barton at which the first victim was sexually assaulted.

This victim had been drugged and raped by Da Silvaneto.

During the trial, the prosecution presented evidence that Da Silvaneto spent the early part of the evening of December 10 approaching men in public restrooms and attempting to engage them.

Da Silvaneto pleaded guilty to a number of drug possession offenses but was found not guilty on one count of kidnapping; one count of committing an offense with intent to commit a sexual offence; one count of administering a substance with intent to stupefy/overpower to enable sexual activity.

The investigating officer, Detective Inspector James Holden-White, said: ‘I am happy that Luiz Inacio Da Silvaneto has been imprisoned for 22 years for his heinous crimes. Da Silvaneto is a sexual predator and a very dangerous man, as such the streets are a much safer place with him behind bars.

“Da Silvaneto used what appears to be a well-rehearsed modus operandi; targeting men, administering a substance to incapacitate and subdue the chosen victim, and then engaging in sexual activity with them, knowing that they are unable to consent.

“Da Silvaneto deliberately targeted heterosexual men whom he believed would be particularly unlikely to report the offenses to the police, but he was wrong.

“Both victims showed immense bravery throughout and it was because of them that Da Silvaneto was convicted and imprisoned.

“We keep an open mind as to the possibility that Da Silvaneto has committed other offences.

“Therefore, if you have any information in relation to this investigation, please contact Thames Valley Police via the following email address [email protected]
