Police are hunting for the two gun-wielding fiends who threw a man down a flight a steps on Sunday.

The victim told police that he was arguing with the goons inside an Eighth Avenue apartment building near 58th Street at around 3 pm, when bruisers began punching the victim in the face, before pushing him down a flight of stairs.

One of the punks then smashed the victim’s phone on the ground, while the other brandished a gun and threatened to shoot the victim, according to police.

The victim sustained minor cuts and bruises, but refused medical attention at the scene, cops said.

There have been no arrests made and the investigation remains ongoing.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypd crime, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
