The mobile phone vision, filmed by a girl only known as Rebecca, shows the women hurling abuse at the man before assaulting a fellow passenger.
One of the female passengers then punches and kicks the man who cowers against the window.
The teenager filming can be heard frantically pleading with someone on the bus to stop the women as the man tries to retaliate.
Onlookers yell for the women to stop and “leave the poor man alone”, before another male passenger eventually intervenes and forces the offenders off the bus.
The victim, Paul Buttigieg, has now spoken to the media. He is not Indigenous but of Maltese background.
The two women have now been publicly identified as Larna Watmough aged 21 and Laini Cameron aged 17. They have both been remanded in custody.
