The NYPD is after two masked men that nabbed thousands of dollars from a popular Throggs Neck deli earlier this month.

Thieves broke into and robbed Phillips Gourmet Deli in the 45th Precinct, taking an estimated $7,200 overnight at about 3:50 a.m. on Friday, May 1, according to police.

The two burglars broke into the corner deli by forcing open a basement door before stealing the thousands of dollars that was split between two safes, according to NYPD reports.

Police released this video of the burglary.

That duo reportedly fled the scene on foot eastbound down Phillip Avenue.

The two perps are described by police as males who wore dark colored clothing and masks on their faces.
