Bus attack sentence increased

A boy who harassed two women when they refused to kiss on a bus in Greater London has had his sentence increased because of his ‘homophobic’ actions.

The 16-year-old and two other boys pelted Melania Geymonat and her date, Christine Hannigan, with coins on Thursday 30th May; they also stole a handbag from them.

All three boys had previously admitted targeting the couple on a night bus in Camden.

The 16-year-old has had his six-month referral order extended by two months.
