PARK SLOPE — It wasn't exactly a clean getaway.

A pair of thieves stole more than $500 in bath and beauty supplies from a Park Slope CVS pharmacy but cops caught both of them, according to a police report.

Police arrested Ismael Rivera, 36, and Sabrina Carlo, 35, after they allegedly snatched Q-tips, deodorant, shea butter, Claritin, Motrin, NyQuil and other toiletries from the CVS on Ninth Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues on Aug. 22.

Rivera allegedly punched a female CVS employee in the face as he ran away. Cops tracked him down on Eighth Street and arrested Carlo inside the CVS. Both were charged with second-degree robbery, according to court records.
