Riot squad officers were called to the scene as well as those from Sydney City Police Area Command – who arrested the men on Pirrama Road near Murray Street.
A witness and friend of the girls claimed they stepped in to protect their male friends.
‘There is no excuse for their actions,’ the witness wrote in an Instagram post.
‘The worst thing any of us have ever had to see, with my group of 16 YEAR OLD GIRLS having to deal with this horrific situation.
‘Cannot begin to explain what has happened and how much it has affected us. Two of the strongest girls going.’
Police said the older two men were charged with affray and two counts of common assault.
