Two men called at the door in the early evening of February 7 claiming to be inspecting gas meters and were allowed entry to the property.

They then sprayed a noxious substance into the faces of the 25 and 17-year-old victims.

The suspects then made off from the area and headed south along the cycle path adjacent to Clovenstone Drive before the women contacted police.

Both men in the video are described as white, late twenties, 5ft 10ins tall with medium builds and wearing dark trousers, high-vis vests and blue baseball caps.

One was wearing a parka-style jacket with a fur trimmed hood.

“Anyone who can assist in identifying them is asked to come forward.

“Similarly we would ask the males themselves to get in touch with police and help with our investigation.”
