A Sunset Park woman is recovering after a knife-wielding maniac viciously slashed her in the neck, head, hands, and chest in a Seventh Avenue massage parlor on Aug. 23.

The unhinged man, believed to be the woman’s boyfriend, knifed the 38-year-old victim inside the Relax Spa near 60th Street at 8:59 am, police said.

He fled on foot and a manhunt ensued, but officials came up short and called off the search after about two hours, a witness said. The suspect remains at large, a department spokeswoman said.

Emergency responders took the victim to Lutheran Medical Center. Officials do not know the woman’s condition, the spokeswoman said.
