Cops seek a CitiBike-riding suspect wanted for stabbing a man outside a bodega on the Lower East Side two weeks ago.

According to the police report, the attacker was involved in a dispute with the 43-year-old victim outside 107 Clinton Street, just north of Delancey, at about 8:50am on the morning of August 23. It is not known what caused the altercation.

However, when the victim turned to walk away from the argument, the perp pulled a knife and stabbed the man multiple times in the chest.

The getaway vehicle was a CitiBike, on which the suspect fled in an unknown direction.

EMS transported the victim to Bellevue Hospital with multiple stab wounds and a laceration to his torso. He is reportedly in stable condition.

The perp is described as a man in his thirties with a light complexion, and standing 5 feet tall, with a large, black hairdo and facial hair. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, black shorts, and black sneakers.
