Cops are searching for two gun-wielding burglars who brutally beat a man during a Bronx home invasion.

Law enforcement sources say the crooks followed a female victim into her apartment in a building on East 170th Street. near Grand Concourse in Mount Eden. After gaining entrance at around 8:05 a.m., they pistol-whipped a 37-year-old male victim before gagging and binding the two victims together with duct tape.

The scoundrels made off with $30,000, two Rolex watches and four gold chains, according to cops, before fleeing southbound on Grand Concourse in a gray Honda sedan. The male victim sustained a minor laceration on the head and refused medical attention at the scene; the female victim was not injured.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing, according to the NYPD.
