The men are all described as white and in their early 20s. The first man was wearing dark clothing, a lightweight rain sport jacket, was unshaven and had an English accent. The second man was wearing a light grey tracksuit.

Investigating officer Dc Ann-Marie Pitcher said: “After the incident the victim asked someone outside a nearby bar for help. I am keen to speak to that person as they may have information that could help us find the men responsible.”
