A mugging was nearly fatal when a vicious crook stabbed a 26-year-old woman with a steak knife so roughly that the blade broke off inside her on Oct. 2.

The cruel crook confronted his victim at around 7:45 pm on Orient Avenue between Metropolitan Avenue and Olive Street, cops said

“Give me your bag — and don’t scream,” the mugger demanded.

When the victim removed her messenger bag and handed it to the robber, the bad situation got worse.

“When he was a few steps away, I panicked and began screaming at the top of my lungs,” the victim wrote in an e-mail first published by the,a Web site.

“He turned back around, ran the few steps back to me and proceeded to stab me once in the chest — perforating a lung — and once in the arm. Luckily for me, the blade broke and was left hanging out of my arm. I think that he would have continued attacking me if this had not happened.”

The crook — who was wearing a Mets cap during the attack, though it is unclear if he is actually a fan of the Amazin’s — fled with the bag containing credit cards, IDs and gift cards, while the wounded victim was comforted by neighbors until an ambulance transported her to Bellevue Hospital.

To the "reporter": attempting humor in a piece about a mugging/stabbing is just not ever going to be funny.
