Cops are seeking this Hasidic man for the attempted knife-point kidnapping of a woman on July 3 in South Williamsburg.

The 22-year-old victim escaped with only cuts to her hands in the 11 am attack at the corner of Williamsburg Street and Kent Avenue. Cops say the man pulled up next to her in a gray minivan, and, using a knife, tried to coerce her into the vehicle.

“If you say anything, I’ll kill you,” he said, according to police. The victim didn’t talk, but she did fight back, escaping with only minor injuries while the man fled in the minivan.

Police describe him as a 240-pound, white, black-bearded, Hasidic man, between the ages of 37 and 45, wearing glasses, black pants, and a “white fringe garment” — an apparent reference to the prayer shawl worn underneath the clothing by Orthodox Jewish men.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Detective Roman at the 84th Precinct at (718) 875-6687. All identities will be kept anonymous, the police said.
