This is a shocking. The photo is disturbing as well as disgusting of a teen girl covered in blood followed an alleged homophobic attack by a pair who screamed ‘f****** lesbian’ at her in the street.
A teenager has been hospitalised after she was viciously beaten in the street by two girls in an alleged homophobic attack.
Ellie-Mae Mulholland, from west Hull, claims she was attacked yesterday after confronting ‘one of her friends’ over ten pounds they owed her.
The two attackers allegedly beat Ellie-Mae, calling her a ‘f*****g lesbian’ and threatening her and her partner, warning they would ‘get it ten times worse next
Ellie-Mae has been taken to Hull Royal Infirmary to receive treatment for her injuries, according to her sister, Stevie-Leigh Ansell.
She said: ‘My younger sister was out and about on her way home from one of her friend’s house. She had seen a couple of her friends, who are usually her friends, and one of them owed her a tenner and Ellie asked about it.
‘The lass said she never had it. Then they both beat her [Ellie-Mae] black and blue.
‘Because she is gay they called her a ‘f*****g lesbian, you and your girlfriend are going to get it ten times worse next time’.
‘She thought they were her friends. All this happened while she was on the phone to her mum.’
Stevie-Leigh, 22, has posted pictures of the bloody injuries her sister suffered on Facebook.
She says that Ellie-Mae has been left with a bruised and bloodied nose, two black-eyes and two lumps on her head.
She said: ‘Just by looking at her face they have had a really good go at her. I think is absolutely ridiculous.
‘I feel I cannot let this happen to my sister because she is gay. I just feel really helpless.
‘It is not okay, regardless if she is gay or not, to do this to an 18-year-old. It is absolutely disgusting.
‘This is something daft over a tenner and then all the gay stuff came out which I don’t see why it is such a problem.
‘As soon as they have an argument it is straight to her being a lesbian. Because she smokes they won’t take her cigarettes off her because they say they will get ‘lesbian germs.”
Stevie-Leigh says the police have been informed of the attack and given the names of the alleged suspects.
A spokesman for Humberside Police said: ‘We are aware of an incident that took place yesterday in Hull involving an alleged assault of an 18 year-old woman by two females.’
Detective Chief Inspector Ali Sweeting added: ‘We are in the early stages of our investigations and will be speaking to the victim and to other parties involved to establish the full circumstances of the incident.
‘If it is established that there was a homophobic motive we will be treating this appropriately. We deal with all hate incidents and crimes thoroughly and do not expect the people of our communities to have to suffer from the intolerance of others.’
