"The suspects are described as being male and all were wearing dark clothing with their hoods up and faces covered," said a police spokeswoman.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident number 804 of January 10, or get in touch through Crimestoppers at www.crimestoppers-uk.org, or call 0800 555 111.
