Cops are hunting for these two men in relation to a violent robbery attempt.

Cops are hunting the would-be thieves who slashed a man in the neck during a botched robbery in Sunset Park earlier this month. 

The 31-year-old victim told cops that the two crooks pulled a box cutter on him and demanded on Fifth Avenue near 52nd Street at 2:30 am on Feb. 5.

When the victim refused to fork over his wallet, one of the fiends slashed him, before fleeing empty handed, cops said.

Paramedics took the victim to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released the that night. No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. 

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
