Two robbers knocked off an Asian massage parlor in Manhattan early Thursday and got just the happy ending they were after: cash and electronics.

The unsuspecting workers at the Paradise Spa on E. 33rd St. in Murray Hill buzzed in the duo about 2 a.m., thinking they wanted muscle-relaxing sessions.

But the three women working at the spa immediately found themselves in a frightening fix when one of the two men, who were clad in blue uniforms, claimed he was packing a pistol in his pocket, police said.

The workers cooperated with the hold-up, and the bandits made off with a sizable haul: cash and computers along with cell phones and iPads belonging to the women, police said.

The women described one of the bandits as white, about 35 to 40 years-old, 6-feet-tall and 240 pounds; they said the other was a Latino in his 30s, about 5-foot-5 and 150 pounds.

Investigators are trying to review surveillance video from a nearby hair salon to see if cameras filmed images of the suspects.
