The youths are described as being white, around 5ft to 5ft 5ins tall and in their mid-teens.
One of them was wearing all black clothing with trainers which had white soles and the second was wearing a black coat, baseball cap with a white peak, red corduroy style trousers and dark coloured shoes.
Anyone who was in the area at the time or witnessed suspicious activity is asked to call 101 quoting incident 40 of 26 December.
