Cops are hunting the four brutes who stabbed a man over a measly $20 in Crown Heights on July 20.

The 26-year-old victim told police that he was walking on Atlantic Avenue between Nostrand and Bedford avenues at 9 a.m., when the thieves waltzed up — one brandishing a knife — and demanded his valuables.

The knife-wielding robber then stabbed the victim three times in the chest and arm, before the crew nabbed $20 from his pocket and hightailed it, according to police.

First responders arrived on the scene and took the victim to Kings County Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, cops said.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.

That probably because you're a racist Frank. Why are you focused on their race instead of the crime? Do you think a person's skin color determines their propensity to commit crime? What about mass shootings? Why are those committed by whites 90% of the time? I bet you will call that statement racist because you are white.

Why are white people so concerned with the race of criminals? What do you think the percentages are in predominantly white cities?

Because you're overly concerned with race, that's a white trait.

Once again incorrect, and baseless in fact. What matrix are you following beside the voices in your head.
