"Officers are currently viewing CCTV and carrying out door-to-door inquiries in an attempt to gain further information on the identities of the men responsible for this violent attack.

"I urge anyone who was in the vicinity of Easterhill Place around the time this incident took place and who may have seen the culprits hanging around the area either before or afterwards to contact police immediately."
