A man was arrested early Monday after he tried to grab a cop’s gun — and then punched the officer — at ABC Studios in Midtown, police sources said.

The uniformed NYPD cop was working security for the network at their studios on 44th Street and Seventh Avenue when, at around 3:30 a.m., Aohua Yang allegedly approached and asked what the last stop on the R train was.

As the officer searched for the answer, Yang, 23, allegedly went for his gun.

But Yang was unable to get the firearm out of its holster — and then slugged the cop, according to the sources.

The officer restrained Yang as he called for backup.

The Brooklyn resident was placed in custody and taken to NYU hospital to be treated for pain to his elbow and a small cut to his left hand.

It was unclear whether he had been charged as of Monday night.
