Three teenage boys admit threatening lesbian couple on bus who refused to perform sex act

Three teenage boys have admitted threatening two women on a bus after they refused to perform a sex act.

Melania Geymonat, 28, and her girlfriend Chris were targeted on the top of a double-decker London night bus after refusing to kiss.

The teenagers, aged 15, 16 and 17, appeared in court on Thursday after previously denying charges of harassment by using threatening or abusive words or behaviour.

Highbury Corner Youth Court previously heard the two women were surrounded by the boys, hit with coins and subjected to sexual gestures after they refused to perform a sex act.

Prosecutor Saira Khan told the court the teenagers each played different roles during the nine-minute incident.

Charges were dropped against a 17-year-old.

Before the trial on Thursday which was expected to last two days, all the teenagers who cannot be named due to their ages, admitted the public order offences.

The group began harassing the two women as they were travelling from West Hampstead to Camden Town in the early hours of May 30.

When the teenagers discovered the women were a couple, the group are said to have asked them to kiss, while making sexual gestures.

Both women were taken to hospital for treatment to facial injuries after the incident.

Prosecutor Saira Khan told the court the teenagers each played different roles during the nine-minute incident.

Geymonat, originally from Uruguay, wrote on Facebook after the incident: “They started behaving like hooligans, demanding that we kissed so they could enjoy watching, calling us ‘lesbians’ and describing sexual positions.

"I don’t remember the whole episode, but the word 'scissors' stuck in my mind.

"In an attempt to calm things down, I started making jokes.

"I thought this might make them go away.

“Chris even pretended she was sick, but they kept on harassing us, throwing us coins and becoming more enthusiastic about it.”

She said there were at least four attackers, and within seconds they were hitting her girlfriend.

Geymonat added: “I went over there only to find her face bleeding and three of them beating her up.

"The next thing I know is I'm being punched.

"I got dizzy at the sight of my blood and fell back. I don’t remember whether or not I lost consciousness.”
