Teen gay-bashes straight couple

by PageOneQ

An Irish teenager is facing assault charges after he assaulted a man and his short-haired girlfriend, mistaking them for two men, reports the Irish Independent Thursday.

The boy, 16, has been charged in juvenile court with the assault, occurring after asking the man and his girlfriend if they were "two gay guys." They then became "f$%^ing gay bastards" as they were thrown to the ground, punched and kicked on a busy Dublin street.

The couple have made a full recovery, and the case is still pending. The boy has no prior record, and was intoxicated during the attack, says his lawyer. These factors could lead to leniency in sentencing.
