Dc Kerry Burrows from the robbery unit said: "This was a very vicious incident which left one of the boys with serious injuries. The attackers were in a large group and I'm sure that somebody must have seen them and be able to identify some or all of them to me."
Both boys were taken to Lister Hospital but were not kept in overnight.
