An NYPD housing detective was set to be fired after being convicted of ramming two people with his minivan in the Bronx — then returning and punching one of his victims who objected to being hit, officials said Friday.

Detective Carlos Sierra, a 12-year veteran of the department, was convicted Thursday of official misconduct, misdemeanor assault and leaving the scene of an accident for the Nov. 18, 2012, incident at E. 174th St. and Jerome Ave.

He was automatically terminated from the NYPD, officials said Friday.

Sierra was driving his Toyota Sienna against traffic on E. 174th St. about 5 a.m. when he sideswiped a parked car and struck two people. His victims suffered minor injuries. Sierra drove off, then returned and punched one of his victims during an argument, according to court documents.
