In absolutely despicable news, two women were viciously attacked by several men after they refused to kiss one another for their entertainment.

Melania Geymonat, 28, from Uruguay, is a Ryanair flight attendant living in London and who has an American girlfriend called Chris.

The two were riding the bus together after a night out in London and that’s when they were approached by these sick men.

Minding their own business on the top floor of the double decker bus, Melania and Chris began to be troubled by a group of men. As Melania states, one spoke Spanish while the rest were British.

The group started to make lewd gestures and comments, before demanding that the two kiss in front of them, for their entertainment.

The pair obviously refused and that led to the group attacking them. They started by throwing change, before things took a more violent turn…

Speaking to Uruguayan site, Montevideo Portal, Melania said:

They wanted us to kiss so they could watch us.

I tried to defuse the situation as I’m not a confrontational person, telling them to please leave us alone as Chris wasn’t feeling well.

The next thing I remember was Chris in the middle of them and they were beating her.

I didn’t think about it and went in. I was pulling her back and trying to defend her so they started beating me up.

I don’t even know if I was knocked unconscious. I felt blood, I was bleeding all over my clothes and all over the floor.

We went downstairs and the police were there.

It’s not something isolated, it’s common. We were seen as entertainment, that’s what makes me so angry.

The group then stole the women’s belongings, with Melania adding:

I do not remember when the bus stopped or who called the police.

She later praised the London Police for their hard work and level of communication.

Melania has only been in the country since February, working as a flight attendant whilst she takes a break from her medical studies. She explained why she came out with her story, saying:

What prompted me the most to tell the story is the violence against women that I perceive, not only here in Europe, but also in Uruguay.”

We hope that Melania and Chris recover as fast as possible. Thus far the fate of the men responsible is unknown, but finger’s crossed they’re caught and punished both appropriately and swiftly.
