One of the attackers threatened the man with a knife on Toft Street before they both fled into a waiting light blue hatchback driven by a third person. It was about 8.10pm.

Both of the alleged attackers, two men, are described as tall and wearing dark clothes. One of the men was wearing a face mask and the other had a dark complexion.
