Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa could have used a little help from his own group last week.
Sliwa, 64, was attacked by a teenage thug who slugged him in the face — knocking out one of his teeth — on a Manhattan street, police sources said Tuesday.
The anti-crime activist and radio show host — who in 1992 was shot multiple times in an assumed mob hit — told cops that minutes earlier, he had been walking up subway station stairs when he spotted four teenagers fighting around 7 p.m. Friday.
One of the teens followed him as he continued walking on West 33rd Street near Eighth Avenue, ran up from behind him and struck him, causing him to lose a front left tooth, the police sources said.
It wasn’t immediately clear why the teen followed Sliwa and attacked him, a police spokesman said.
Sliwa refused medical attention and was unable to identify the person who punched him.
He did not immediately return a call Tuesday.
