Two men were stabbed in their car at a Queens intersection on Wednesday night in an apparent road rage attack, police reported.

Both victims are currently listed in stable condition at area hospitals. Detectives are continuing to search for their attackers.

Police said the double stabbing happened at about 8:26 p.m. on Aug. 4 near the corner of 30th Road and 21st Street in Astoria.

Law enforcement sources said four men were inside a 2014 black Nissan Altima when the driver of the vehicle got into an argument with the two suspects, described as Hispanic men, who were on an orange e-bike.

The argument turned violent when the e-bike riders went on the attack and knifed two of the four Nissan occupants. One of the victims, a 20-year-old man, was stabbed below the right eye; the other victim, an 18-year-old man, suffered stab wounds to his left arm and side.

Following the attack, cops said, the two suspects fled on their e-bike southbound along 23rd Street. Police later found the scooter abandoned near the corner of 23rd Street and 30th Drive.

The sedan, meanwhile, struck the exterior of the nearby Boys and Girls Club.

So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
