The attackers wore dark clothing and had their faces covered.
Detective Sergeant David Lamont said: "This was an extremely violent attack which we believed was targeted and extensive enquiries are under way to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.
"I would appeal to anyone who was in the area just after midnight on Monday morning who may have heard a disturbance or saw two men running away from Millhall Court to please get in touch.
"I would also like to speak to anyone who noticed a vehicle parked in Arbuckle Road near to the junction with Millhall Court around the time of the attack."
