Manhunt: Police are searching for two men who broke into a Sunset Park grocery store and stole cash and lottery tickets.

Cops are hunting the two burglars who looted a Sunset Park supermarket in the early hours of June 28.

Surveillance video shows the hooded-freebooters using a bolt cutter to break the locks on a gate barring entrance to the Sixth Ave shop near 51st Street at around 4 a.m., before prying open the front door with a crowbar.

Once inside, the thieves — who cops estimate are in their 30s — stole approximately $3,000 in cash and $200 worth of lottery tickets, cops said.
