Police have arrested two people in connection to a violent home invasion that happened on Monday morning in Marine Park.

The man and the woman, both in their twenties, were charged with attempted murder, assault, burglary, grand larceny, and criminal possession of a weapon, according to police.

Police say those two individuals, plus an accomplice, broke into the Madison Place home of a retired police lieutenant at 5:30 am on Oct. 8, attacking the 72-year-old former cop and sexually assaulting his 71-year-old wife.

The brutes allegedly slashed the retired cop’s face with a boxcutter and hit him in the head with a gun, according to the authorities.

They then allegedly stole the couple’s Honda Civic and fled the scene, police said.

Later on Monday night, a man and woman were stopped in the stolen car at the Battery Tunnel and brought in for questioning, authorities said.

The retired couple were previously victims of a burglary last July, when the former cop’s firearm was taken and has since not been recovered since, according to police.

The police department reps couldn’t confirm the condition of the victims, but the New York Times reported that they were treated at a nearby hospital and the woman was recovering there at on Monday night.
