Cops are hunting the four brutes who stabbed a man over a measly $20 in Crown Heights on July 20.

The 26-year-old victim told police that he was walking on Atlantic Avenue between Nostrand and Bedford avenues at 9 a.m., when the thieves waltzed up — one brandishing a knife — and demanded his valuables.

The knife-wielding robber then stabbed the victim three times in the chest and arm, before the crew nabbed $20 from his pocket and hightailed it, according to police.

First responders arrived on the scene and took the victim to Kings County Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, cops said.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
