Two cops patrolling a crime-ridden Brooklyn housing project were badly beaten by a group of men they tried to handcuff in a stairwell, police said.

The attack happened as the unidentified housing cops were searching for a robbery suspect who was believed to be hiding in one of the buildings at the Marlboro Houses along West Eighth Street in Gravesend around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, authorities said.

The police officers encountered the men hanging out in the stairwell near the third floor, authorities said.

When the cops ordered the group to get up against a wall and attempted to cuff them, the men started beating the cops, who were quickly overpowered, sources said.

The officers were repeatedly punched and kicked before the suspects ran off and left the beaten cops in the stairwell.

One of the cops suffered head and neck injuries and his partner suffered a shoulder injury, authorities said.

But even with their injuries, the officers managed to call for backup, and within minutes a team of police officers were spread out through the building hunting the assailants.

Police soon arrested four suspects, who were identified as William Rivera Sr., 46, and his son William Rivera Jr., 26, Noel Gonzalez-Colon, 28, and David Rivera, 44. No charges have been filed yet.

"These brave officers were set upon by a group of thugs who have seriously assaulted police officers and attempted to take their weapons in the past," said PBA president Patrick Lynch.

"If the work these officers do is to benefit the people of those apartment houses, then the system must hold these repeat offenders responsible to the maximum extent possible," Lynch said.

"If we are to make these buildings safe, then we must fight the anti-police climate created by gangs and criminals while increasing police staffing in these areas to Safe Streets Safe City levels."

The injured officers were taken to Lutheran Medical Center, where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries before being released.
