Two men who allegedly assaulted a pair of 15-year-olds on an Auckland train while dressed as up as the Four Square icon have handed themselves in to police.

The group of five were caught on camera last weekend carrying out an unprovoked attacked on the teens on a train bound for Henderson. It's believed the suspects were heading to the Auckland Darts Masters.

Police say two of the costume-clad offenders have come forward, but the other three are yet to be spoken to.

The mother of one of the victims, Jen De Montalk, says her daughter and her friend were the victim of an alleged assault "fuelled by homophobia and alcohol".

"One of them exposed himself and one of them choked the boy after calling him a f****t," she said.

"My daughter got clipped by a stray punch and the strangler also head-butted the boy. They also stole the boy's phone but the kids got it back.

"After the assault, my daughter managed to persuade one of the train staff to kick them off. They got off at the Baldwin St station."

Charges are yet to be laid.
