Authorities are hunting for the villain who brutally stabbed a woman at Park Slope’s 15th Street-Prospect Park subway station early Tuesday morning.

The 36-year-old victim told cops that she, the suspect, and two other guys were drinking before the slasher sexually propositioned her and she refused, leading him to stab her in the stomach with a kitchen knife at 5:05 am at the station near Bartel Pritchard Square, according to Police Department spokeswoman Det. Sophia Mason.

The men fled following the attack, and first responders transported the woman, who managed to contact authorities despite her wound, to Methodist Hospital in stable condition, Mason said.

Officials described the suspect as approximately 30-years-old, five-feet-seven-inches tall, 165 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, and said he was last seen in an orange coat.
