Assailants pounced on a 17-year-old boy and stabbed him to death on a Bronx street corner Wednesday night, cops said.

The suspects attacked the teen on E. 193rd St. and Decatur Ave. in Fordham Manor about 7:20 p.m. — and then fled, cops said. Medics rushed the teen to St. Barnabas Hospital, but he couldn’t be saved.

A security guard who works at a women’s shelter on E. 193rd St., who didn’t want to give his name, said he saw the teen walking up to a deli at the corner.

And later, he said, “I seen him when they had him on the stretcher. It was just a lot of cops outside, brought the canines and everything.”

Cops were looking for witnesses and surveillance video, and were on the hunt for several male suspects, police said.

The stabbing took place less than a mile from the spot where cops allege a band of knife-wielding Trinitarios gang members murdered Lesandro (Junior) Guzman-Feliz last June.

The killers dragged Lesandro out of the Cruz and Chiky grocery store on E. 183rd St. and Bathgate Ave. June 20, then stabbed him with a machete and knives, while security cameras recorded the shocking attack.

Police have arrested 14 suspects in the case, including several men suspected of chasing Lesandro before the attack.
