The victims were allegedly chased and attacked by a group of six young men.

Ambersley, from Wembley, north-west London, and Gedel, from Ilford in east London, have been remanded in custody ahead of a trial at the Old Bailey on July 18 next year.
Six other males arrested have been released under investigation pending further inquiries, police said.
