Cops are hunting for the knife-wielding villain who fatally stabbed Sheepshead Bay resident Maxim Doukhan in broad daylight outside his Avenue Z apartment building on July 30.

Emergency responders discovered the 48-year-old victim unconscious and unresponsive with a stab wound to his chest between E. 11th and E. 12th streets a little before 1 pm, and transported him to Lutheran Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead, according to authorities.

Police have made no arrests and continue to investigate leads — including a trail of blood leading up to another apartment inside the building, which was empty at the time — officials said.
