An investigation is underway.
No arrests have been made.
The offenders are described as being slim to medium build. At the time of the incident, they were all wearing black clothing.

"No one was injured but this incident could have had more serious consequences, especially as the offenders tried to squirt a substance in the victims' faces.
"I am appealing to anyone with information to contact us or Crimestoppers as soon as possible so we can identify those responsible and ensure they face justice."
