Lesbian couple insulted then assaulted by "Arab" immigrants[edit]

Two lesbian women in the northern Italian town of Padua claim they were insulted by two North African immigrants and physically assaulted by one of them as they kissed in a public park. The two women, a 19-year-old Brasilian and a 37-year-old Italian, are an item.

The women told police who answered their emergency call that immigrants first insulted them, and one of the men then pushed the Brasilian women off her bicycle after she kissed her girlfriend late on Tuesday.

The Brasilian was in tears when police arrived at the park and both women were taken to a nearby hospital's emergency department. The Brasilian decided not to undergo a medical examination and said she did not want to make an official police complaint.

Police said they had been unable to trace the two North African men and some eyewitnesses claimed they had seen the two lesbians earlier quarrelling at the park.
