Two knife-wielding fiends stabbed an 18-year-old man out for an evening stroll with a pal in Prospect Park on Monday night, according to police.

The victim and his pal were enjoying the unseasonably warm weather near the Prospect Park Zoo off Flatbush Avenue at 9:40 pm, when two goons approached the pair and a confrontation ensued, before one of the belligerents drew a knife and stabbed the teen in the guts, cops said.

Paramedics were called the scene and rushed the victim to Methodist hospital, where he is in serious but stable condition, according to police.

Cops scoured the park for the stabbers, but their search came up empty handed and the pair remain at large, a police spokesman said.
