A doctor who examined a teenage lesbian couple said that one of them suffered a fractured nose in an argument with two teenage boys but the injuries were not serious.
The doctor, Phillipa Ergyu, took the witness stand in the case in which the couple, aged 15 and 16, allege they were attacked in January by two brothers, aged 15 and 17, who called them names.
The boys were arraigned along with a 35-year-old woman who allegedly got involved in the fight despite not being connected to the boys.
The girls too were arraigned and accused of slightly injuring the boys.
Dr Ergyu said that the injuries suffered by the 15-year-old were not serious and would heal.
In the previous sitting, a friend of the couple said that one of the girls had been head-butted by one of the boys.
The case continues.
Lawyers Michael and Lucio Sciriha appeared for the boys and the 35-year-old woman.
Lawyer Cedric Mifsud appeared for the two girls.
