The men then fled the scene on foot.

The first man was described as dark-skinned with shoulder-length dark hair and wearing jeans and a T-shirt.

Both men are about 20 years old.

Det-Sgt Mackay said there was nothing specific to suggest other women in the area were at risk.

“At this stage it appears to be a random event and until we can identify those involved it is difficult to say whether it was an opportunistic or targeted offence,” he said.

Det-Sgt Mackay said police would like to speak with anyone who saw two men matching the description at the weekend or have any information that could assist their investigation.
