Detective Sergeant Sarah Petrow, of the Crime Team in North Lincolnshire, said: "Incidents such as this in North Lincolnshire are very rare and I would like to reassure the public that police are doing all they can to catch the people responsible.
"I am asking for anyone who may have seen two men acting in a suspicious manner in the location of Quebec Road at around 1300hrs on Wednesday 21 November to come forward.
"This incident could have been more serious than it was and thankfully nobody was injured.
"It is for that reason that anyone who may know who these two men are needs to call police immediately."
The offenders are described as wearing dark clothing, with balaclavas covering their faces and are both thought to be of slim build and between 5ft 9in and 5ft 11in tall.
The road was initially closed off between Sunningdale and Hurst Lane as a safety precaution but reopened a short time later.
The police helicopter assisted officers on the ground.
