Both attackers were described as aged about 17 years old. One was white, had his face covered with a red mask, and was wearing a black rain jacket, tracksuit trousers, and a black tracksuit top.

The other was black, wore a grey Northface puffa jacket and tracksuit trousers.

Detective Constable Nicola Tompkins said: “This was a very frightening experience for the victims and I am appealing for anyone who saw this incident to get in touch.

A 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy, both from Windsor, were arrested on Friday on suspicion of attempted robbery and released under investigation.
