Cops are looking for two gunmen in sunglasses who held up an auto body shop in South Ozone Park on Saturday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources said the stickup took place at 1:15 p.m. on May 13 at the Ozone Auto Body garage located at 125-07 Rockaway Blvd., off 125th Street.

According to police, the two suspects walked into the garage and displayed silver firearms as they confronted the shop’s owner and four employees. The crooks demanded the payroll money, then forced the five victims to the ground.

Seconds later, authorities said, the perpetrators removed money and other personal property from the victims, then fled the location foot eastbound on Rockaway Boulevard and then southbound on 126th Street. There, police noted, the suspects were observed entering a white SUV — believed to be a Dodge Nitro — that sped away.
