Two women have been charged with an attack on a visually impaired elderly man that has left him too afraid to take public transport.

Lana Janet Watmough, 21, and Layni Gloria Cameron, 17, were filmed kicking 77-year-old Paul Buttigieg and apparently racially abusing him on Tuesday.

Both were charged with serious assault and public nuisance on Saturday of the incident which took place in Gold Coast bus in Queensland, Australia.

Buttigieg told Nine News: "They were swearing down the back and they finished up down near me, and they were swearing, and I just said “would you mind stop swearing” – bang and they hit me."

The pair also abused a mother with a pram.
