The suspects were described as around 15 years old, one wearing blue shorts and the other all in black. Both were attempting to conceal their faces. No injuries were reported and the suspects reportedly made off down Heygarth Road towards the A41.
Detective Inspector Lynsay Armbruster said: “This incident would have been alarming to witness and frightening to experience.
