MARINE PARK, Brooklyn — Armed robbers sexually assaulted a woman in her 70s in her Brooklyn home early Sunday and slashed her husband – a retired NYPD lieutenant — in the face, police sources said.

The home invaders broke into the Madison Place home around 5:30 a.m., an NYPD spokesperson said. They struck the 72-year-old retired officer in the head and slashed his face with a box cutter.

His wife was the victim of a “criminal sexual act,” police said. Both were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The armed robbers stole a 2012 blue Honda Civic.

Police said they arrested two individuals at about 10:15 p.m. Monday—a 21-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman—after a  police chase that started in Lower Manhattan and ended on the Gowanus Expressway in Brooklyn.

Police are still looking for a third suspect.
