Three straphangers pummeled a subway conductor in Penn Station when he told them to stop smoking marijuana on his train, authorities said Monday.

The hoodlums were toking up on a No. 3 train when the 54-year-old conductor ordered them to put out the joint just before 6 a.m. Sunday, officials said.

The assailants then began pounding on the MTA employee’s compartment door and verbally harassed him until he exited when the train pulled into the Midtown station. They then savagely attacked him.

The stoners pounded the victim’s face repeatedly until they fractured both his eye socket and and nose and also left him various other cuts and bruises to the face and head, police said.

Despite his injuries, the conductor was able to radio for help and pointed out the brutes to responding police officers, who arrested the men at the scene.

Latiq and Lezon Deveaux, 22 and 21, respectively, were charged with assault and gang assault. Oliver Kinard, 19, was charged with the same, according to police.

The conductor was treated for his injuries at Bellevue Hospital, officials said.
