A man was stabbed in the face following an argument on the E train platform at the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens subway stop.

A man was stabbed in the face during a dispute at a Kew Gardens subway stop Sunday afternoon, cops said.

The argument took place on the Union Turnpike station’s E train platform at about 2:15 p.m., according to police.

After the suspect stabbed the man, he fled and boarded a bus. Police stopped the bus, but he took off again on foot, cops said. The NYPD, using its canine unit, was eventually able to track the 35-year-old suspect to a backyard, and apprehend him.

The 26-year-old victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition, according to officials.
