An Eric Adams campaign volunteer was stabbed four times in the South Bronx in broad daylight Sunday afternoon while canvassing on behalf of the Democratic mayoral hopeful.

The attack on the 42-year-old man was caught on video, but the victim is not cooperating with investigators, police sources said, adding that he had more than 40 prior arrests.

Adams said his supporter had been rushed into surgery.

“A member of Team Adams — who has been working hard & volunteering every day — was stabbed in the Bronx today @ 149th St & Morris Ave. The police are investigating & he’s in surgery,” Adams tweeted.

“We pray for him. This violence must stop.”

The victim was carrying campaign literature when police arrived on the scene, but was refusing to answer questions from detectives, who asked him “are you a campaign worker?,” law enforcement sources told The Post.

Mayoral rival Maya Wiley expressed her condolences Sunday.

“My thoughts are with he and his family and my heart hurts for Team Adams today. New Yorkers shouldn’t have to fear walking down the street,” she tweeted.

Adams — a former NYPD captain — is leading the crowded Democrat field ahead of Tuesday’s primary, which will likely decide the next mayor in the heavily blue city.
