They were armed with a utility knife and what is believed to be a device similar to a stun gun.

The pair were shaken by their ordeal and the man sustained a head injury but did not need medical treatment.

Four people including two men and two women, were arrested on Saturday (February 1) in onnection with the incident.

They have all been released on bail while inquiries continue.
