Police said no one threatened by the men was injured - however they were "understandably" very shaken and were receiving support.

Both men had their faces covered during the incident, and were wearing dark clothing.

One of them was wearing a hoodie with yellow markings on the back. He also wore fingerless or red-tipped gloves.

Police were asking anyone with relevant information to contact the Hamilton station on 07 858 6200.
