The teenagers are among seven people accused of attacking the 39-year-old in Forbes Place, Paisley, on 24 September.

They were released on bail after appearing at Paisley Sheriff Court.

Two 16-year-old girls, and two others aged 15 and 17, also face charges in connection with the attack as does another boy, aged 15.

One of the 13-year-old boys appeared in court on Wednesday, while the other appeared separately on Thursday.

The 15-year-old boy appeared in court on Wednesday and was also granted bail.

Two teenage girls, aged 15 and 16, were charged in connection with the attack on Tuesday.
