Where are the Guardian Angels when you need them?

The groups red bereted founder, radio personality Curtis Sliwa was socked in the kisser after he broke up a fight in Penn Station, police said Tuesday.

Sliwa, 64, was walking up the stairs following the fracas, when one of the teens he stopped from brawling hauled off and punched him, according to what Sliwa told cops.

The radio show host suffered a chipped tooth and didn’t report the incident to police until Monday, authorities said.

This wasn’t his first brush with violence.

In 1992 Sliwa was kidnapped outside his East Village apartment and shot several times by a mob associate who testified that the attack was ordered by John A. (Junior) Gotti because Sliwa bad-mouthed his father, John (Dapper Don) Gotti, on the radio.

The gunman, Mike Iannotti got 20 years, the younger Gotti was never convicted of his alleged involvement.

The Brooklyn-born Sliwa formed the Guardian Angels in 1979 to patrol and combat violence in the city’s rail system.

Now an outspoken talker on WABC radio, Sliwa considered running against Gov. Cuomo in November’s election on his own Reform Party line, but never went through with it.
