Police are searching for the lowlife who brutally stabbed another man to death in Crown Heights in July.

The knife-wielding man began arguing with 42-year-old Bobby Bruce on Lefferts Place between Classon and Franklin avenues, when he slashed the victim multiple times in the neck, chest, and abdomen at around 2:40 p.m. on July 8, according to police.

First responders arrived at the scene and took Bruce to Brooklyn Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead, according to authorities.

The suspect fled on foot down Fulton Street, toward Spencer Place, 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.
