Disbelief: Sunset Parkers looked on in horror as the police searched for the man responsible.
Brutal slashing: The victim, who was slashed in the neck, was taken to Lutheran Medical Center.
Closed: The typically bustling Relax Spa was eerily calm after the owner was attacked.
Manhunt: Dozens of armed cops stormed nearby stores in search of the man who police say stabbed his girlfriend at her massage parlor on Seventh Avenue in Sunset Park on Aug. 23.

A Sunset Park woman is recovering after a knife-wielding maniac viciously slashed her in the neck, head, hands, and chest in a Seventh Avenue massage parlor on Aug. 23.

The unhinged man, believed to be the woman’s boyfriend, knifed the 38-year-old victim inside the Relax Spa near 60th Street at 8:59 am, police said.

He fled on foot and a manhunt ensued, but officials came up short and called off the search after about two hours, a witness said. The suspect remains at large, a department spokeswoman said.

Emergency responders took the victim to Lutheran Medical Center. Officials do not know the woman’s condition, the spokeswoman said.
