Three teens admit threatening two women who refused to perform sex act

Three teenagers have pleaded guilty to threatening two women on a bus after they refused to perform a sex act.

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

Melania Geymonat, a 28-year-old from Uruguay, and her US girlfriend Christine Hannigan were on the upper deck of a double-decker night bus in Camden, north London, when they were confronted by the teenagers in the early hours of 30 May.

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

Both women were taken to hospital with facial injuries following the attack which lasted about nine minutes.
