Melania Geymonat Punched During A Scuffle
She was traveling on the N31 bus in Camden on my way home from an appointment with Melania Ramírez, 28, at approximately 2 a.m. on May 30. It was said that the American was “kissing and hugging” with Miss Ramirez when the teenagers said “oh lesbians” and attacked them on the bus.
Speaking behind a screen at Highbury Youth Court today, she said pretended to be sick to avoid conflict and said: ‘Frankly I deal with a lot of homophobia in London and I was sick of it.’
The three teenagers, aged 15, 16 and 17, pleaded guilty to threatening or abusive behavior towards both women.
But the 17-year-old, who admitted to throwing coins at Ms. Hannigan, denied his actions were motivated by their sexual orientation which was discussed at a Newton hearing today.
Speaking in court today, Miss Hannigan said: ‘I remember two of them were in the aisle and the third one sat in the seat directly behind me.
‘They started making remarks about us visibly being together. It was a lot of ‘oh lesbians. They were asking to know how lesbians have sex.’
She added that several comments were made about a sexual act. She added: ‘I didn’t speak to them. I didn’t feel they wanted an answer from me. ‘Melania and I were together in a romantic sense. We were being affectionate with each other. They wanted us to teach them how lesbians have sex. “They said ‘oh lesbians’ and wanted to know how lesbians have sex and that we can show them.” District Judge Susan Williams said the images clearly showed that the couple was “kissing and hugging” when they first sat in the front of the night bus. When asked how she felt about the comments made by teenagers, Miss Hannigan said: “ It’s quite intimidating, being physically cornered and that people make you homophobic comments in your space.
‘I was not speaking with them. I had turned my back away from them. Melania was speaking to them and she was trying to de-escalate the situation.
‘I engaged with them only after I realized one started throwing coins at us.’
Ms. Hannigan said one of the teenagers threw coins at her at least three times while another three boys ‘were immediately surrounding’ the couple.
She said: ‘They were badgering and harassing us. I had still been ignoring them and turning away from them. As they continued I heard the first coins around us and then one hit me.
‘I was pretending not to feel well so I was bent over myself and my back was turned away from them. I was pretty scared.
The teenager yesterday pleaded guilty to using threatening or abusive behavior towards both Miss Ramirez and Miss Hannigan on May 30.
He was also charged with possession of cannabis a week after the incident and pleaded guilty on August 21.
Addressing the 17-year-old at the beginning of the hearing, District Judge Williams said: ‘I have to make a decision first of all about what you did and then I have to consider the reasons why you did it.
