UK POLICE MAKE 5TH ARREST AFTER ATTACK ON LESBIAN COUPLE
LONDON AFP JUNE8,2019- British police arrested a fifth teenager on Saturday following a homophobic attack on a lesbian couple who refused to kiss for a gang of youths on a London night bus.
Melania Geymonat, 28, said she and her girlfriend Chris were robbed and left covered in blood after the incident on a bus in the north of the British capital last week.
“They surrounded us and started saying really aggressive stuff, things about sexual positions, lesbians and claiming we could kiss so they could watch us,” Geymonat told the BBC on Friday.
“They started throwing coins. The next thing I know Chris is in the middle of the bus and they are punching her,” she said. “So I immediately went there by impulse and tried to pull her out of there and they started punching me. I was really bleeding.” Police said the incident happened in the early hours of May 30 after the two women got on the bus in north London.
