"We're currently asking for the public's help identifying two people who we would like to speak to in connection with the incident, one's a white male in his 20s with close cropped hair the other's a black or Asian male who was wearing a dark hoodie.

"We'd also ask for the public's help in identifying a grey mini, if anybody saw it driving erratically in the area at the time of the offence we would like them to get in touch."
