A gay man with a beard who has deceived four straight men to have sex with him by posing for a woman and covering their eyes with a blindfold has been imprisoned for 15 years.

Duarte Xavier, 33, introduced himself as & # 39; Ana & # 39; on dating apps including Tinder and sent provocative images to fool the victims for sexual encounters.

After being lured to his flat or parks, the victims, aged between 26 and 45, were then blindfolded during the meeting.

Police suspect Xavier has more victims who have not yet reported and appealed to them after he was imprisoned today in Kingston Crown Court.

Xavier was arrested twice and released, pending investigations, but only charged after his third arrest in April. He committed two offenses while on bail.

The judge wondered if Xavier was free to insult on bail because his victims were heterosexual men and therefore treated as less important.

When he addressed the policeman in the case after the conviction, he said: "It is very rare that a heterosexual man is the victim of a sex offense, as we know.

I hope that the fact that these victims were heterosexual men did not cause them to be on the priority list before. & # 39;

The court heard Xavier, who had been shown at a previous hearing, committed two offenses while on bail. The police said the delay was due to a & # 39; waiting list & # 39; for downloading proof of mobile telephony

Detective Constable Lucy Marsh, of the Wandsworth police, who took over the investigation after the original officer who dealt with the case, had lost the evidence, rejected the suggestion.

She said that a & # 39; waiting list & # 39; the downloading of evidence from mobile phones has led to a delay in the investigation.

Judge Michael Hunter said: & # 39; You have been found guilty of what can only be described as a campaign of deception and gaining sex by pretending to be a woman.

& # 39; By pretending to be an attractive and sexually adventurous young woman, you seduced them into engaging in sex with you.

& # 39; You have not shown any remorse or understanding of the position of your victims. & # 39;

One of his victims was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the court heard.

Xavier was reported to the police after a victim dropped his blindfold halfway through the meeting.

The court heard an impact statement from a victim in whom PTSD was determined after it was used for the "own sick fantasy". from Xavier.

The man said: & # 39; He was so convincing. It would be a little fair fun between two consenting adults. I now have extreme stress, anxiety, panic attacks and depression.

& # 39; I was a people person and loved to meet new people. Now I feel that I am carrying a dark secret with me that will always be part of me. I hope that one day I can learn to trust people again. & # 39;

Xavier, of Wandsworth, in south-west London, was found guilty of six points of causing a sexual activity without permission in October after a lawsuit.

He was sentenced to 11 years each for numbers one and two; four years each for the numbers three and four; and six years each for numbers five and six.

The sentences for the counts one, two, five and six must be served simultaneously.

Those for the three and four who were killed after Xavier was rescued were ordered to be served simultaneously with each other, but sequentially with the other counts, resulting in a total of 15 years in prison.

The Metropolitan Police has called on all other potential victims of Xavier to contact them.
