Upon spotting the two victims, Bailey and Kyle both unveiled the machetes with Kyle chasing one of the victims down the train with the machete. The second victim managed to stumble from the train onto the platform, where he was attacked by Bailey with the machete.
Both victims survived the attack.
Detective sergeant Ian Henderson said: “This was a horrific attack which left witnesses distraught and traumatised by what they saw, one witness in particular has been left severely distressed by the attack.
“Both Kearney and Doyle are extremely dangerous individuals, despite their age – it is nothing short of a miracle that neither victim were killed, although both sustained severe lacerations to the head and arms.”
