Police are searching for a gun-toting goon and his blade-wielding buddy who attacked two men in Sunset Park on April 10.

An argument between the duo and two victims at an Eighth Avenue business near 58th Street escalated at 9:40 pm when one of the baddies pulled out a silver handgun.

The gunman tried to fire a round at a 21-year-old man, but the weapon jammed, footage released by police shows.

The brute’s accomplice slashed another man with a sharp object before both attackers fled on foot, said officials.

Police describe the gunman in his 20s with black hair. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a dark jacket, and a white T-shirt with dark pants and dark shoes.

His partner was also described as in his 20s with black hair and was last seen wearing a blue hooded jacket with tan pants and sneakers, officials said.

Police ask anyone with information about crime to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
