Two cops were stripped of their guns and shields after they were caught brawling inside their Bronx stationhouse, police sources said Tuesday.

Officers Vanessa Rodriguez and Helen Flavin were placed on modified assignment Monday and relegated to desk duty.

The two were seen fighting inside the 50th Precinct stationhouse in Kingsbridge, a police source said.

The two were arguing about who was responsible for certain duties at the station when the dispute “became a physical confrontation,” the source said.

No charges were filed. Neither was seriously injured.

Both cops are assigned to the 50th Precinct.

Rodriguez has been an officer for just two years, sources said. Flavin was appointed in 1998 and has been a cop for 19 years, officials said.

An email asking the NYPD for comment was not immediately returned.
