Two Australian teenagers in Central Sydney reportedly attacked two Indians late on Saturday night.

The attack took place on Bathurst Street.

A television channel report said that police were called in at 4 a.m. on Sunday. They were told that the two Australian teenagers struck the two Indian friends on their heads with glass beer bottles.

The Indians, both aged 20, were taken to a Sydney Hospital where they were treated for bruising and minor lacerations, before being discharged.

The police have arrested the two Australian youngsters after a short foot pursuit. The accused, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old were both charged with two counts of assault causing bodily harm in company of others at Sydney's City Central Police Station.

A number of items have been seized for forensic examination. Police also spoke with a number of witnesses.

They will now appear in court on July 20. (ANI)
