Two women injured in UK homophobic attack “for refusing to kiss”

Two women were punched and robbed in what police on Friday (June 7) called a disgusting homophobic assault on a London bus, after one of the victims said their attackers tried to force them to kiss each other.

The incident took place in the early hours of May 30 after the women boarded a night bus in West Hampstead.

The couple, 29-year-old American Chris and her girlfriend 28-year-old Uruguayan Melania Geymonat were treated in hospital for facial injuries.

Four men aged 15 to 18 have been arrested, police said later, and they were looking for other suspects.
