A group of men asked a lesbian couple to kiss in front of them on a London bus and after refusing, they beat and robbed them.
This is the world we live in folks and it’s not a very empathic one.
Melania Geymonat (28) a Ryanair flight attendant and her American partner, Chris were heading for home in the early hours of the morning on May the 30th after a night out when the incident occurred.
There were four men on the top deck of the bus who apparently figured out that the women were couple and furthermore asked them to kiss.
The couple refused and this is when things took a turn for the worse.
According to Geymonat, the men made “crude and sexual gestures”.
Melania Geymonat, 28, told BBC radio :
“They surrounded us and started saying really aggressive stuff, things about sexual positions, lesbians and claiming we could kiss so they could watch us,” she said.
“To ease the situation I tried to make some jokes, like Chris wasn’t understanding because she didn’t speak English. She even acted as if she was sick… but they started throwing coins. The next thing I know Chris is in the middle of the bus and they are punching her.
“So I immediately went there by impulse and tried to pull her out of there and they started punching me. I was really bleeding.”
As reported on Friday by the London Metro Police
“Four males who began to make lewd and homophobic comments to them. The women were then attacked and punched several times before the males ran off the bus. A phone and bag were stolen during the assault,” the statement reads.
After sustaining facial injuries requiring medical treatment, both women were taken to hospital.
Four men aged 15 to 18 have been arrested, police said later, and they were looking for other suspects.
