A Harlem man escaped a stabbing Tuesday with minor injuries — including one caused by the massive kitchen knife left sticking upright out of his scalp, authorities said.

Viral Instagram video of the gory aftermath shows the unidentified man appearing to talk calmly with horrified onlookers and walking toward an FDNY ambulance — seemingly unaware of his blood-drenched undershirt and the kitchen knife protruding from the top of his head.

HOW CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUT THE NYPD SHAKE SHACK ‘POISONING’ BLEW UP

“He looked like he didn’t even feel it,” said one witness to the nightmarish scene, which unfolded around noon at East 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in East Harlem, according to authorities.

“The guy was refusing to go inside the ambulance,” continued the witness, declining to be identified by name.

Added a security guard at a nearby Duane Reade pharmacy who witnessed the attack: “I’m traumatized from seeing that.

“It looks like a scene out of a freaking movie.”

Despite the slasher flick-worthy nature of the injury, cops said that the victim — identified only as a 36-year-old Harlem resident — escaped serious harm because the blade didn’t penetrate his skull.

He was listed in stable condition at Harlem Hospital.

Multiple witnesses characterized the events preceding the stabbing as an apparent domestic squabble in which the man allegedly roughed up a female companion who responded by plunging the knife into his head.

The NYPD, however, said that the stabbing victim and a 34-year-old woman were on the same side of a dispute against another man, who slashed the woman across the cheek before lodging the knife into the man’s head and fleeing the scene.

No arrests or charges were immediately announced.

Man accused of shoving elderly NYC woman has been arrested over 100 times

Westlake Legal Group image Man accused of shoving elderly NYC woman has been arrested over 100 times Reuven Fenton New York Post Larry Celona fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Craig McCarthy article 71587994-858f-559e-a08d-37b939a5d156

A career criminal with more than 100 arrests to his name was busted for cruelly shoving a 92-year-old woman into a Manhattan fire hydrant — leaving his victim too scared to walk alone in her own neighborhood.

The injured elder, a Bronx native named Geraldine, spoke to The Post on Tuesday after cops arrested convicted sex offender Rashid Brimmage, 31, and charged him with attacking her.

“I thought a brick hit me or something hit me on the left side of my head, and I went right down and hit my head against the hydrant,” Geraldine, who asked that her last name be withheld for safety reasons, said of the attack. “Blood was coming out, not spurting blood, but blood was dripping.”

Geraldine, who has lived in Manhattan for more than 50 years, was on her way to Duane Reade when Brimmage allegedly shoved her to the ground near Third Avenue and East 16th Street in Gramercy Park at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

NYC WOMAN, 92, SHOVED TO THE GROUND, VIDEO SHOWS; SUSPECT ARRESTED 

She slammed against the fire hydrant and lay on the ground until a passerby called 911 and medics rushed her to nearby Beth Israel Hospital.

The former teacher, who never married but is dating an 89-year-old lawyer, said her physical wounds were relatively minor and have since healed — but the mental toll has been much more severe.

“Mostly I’m shaken. My head still hurts where it was bleeding, where I hit the hydrant — or where he hit me, I don’t know,” she said.

“Mainly it’s psychological — just the fear of going out on the street,” she added.

“This damned guy put me in a state where I’m fearful to walk the streets alone. So my super’s trying to find somebody who will walk me to a park nearby or to the supermarket, that kind of thing. So that’s the problem.”

Brimmage was busted by cops Tuesday and charged with assault after investigators recognized him from video footage of the attack, authorities said.

The frequent offender has now been arrested 103 times since 2005 for petty crimes and sex offenses, sources said.

The creep was convicted of sexual misconduct in 2012, then arrested for two sex offenses in 2014, police sources said.

In May of that year, he was busted for exposing and fondling himself on an East Harlem street, the sources said.

Just months later, in July, he was arrested for grabbing a woman’s behind at a Third Avenue deli.

In 2017, he failed to notify authorities that he changed his address and had to register as a sex offender, state records show.

At the time of Friday’s attack, Brimmage had three open criminal cases in the city, according to court records.

He was arrested Feb. 17 for a misdemeanor assault and harassment charge for an incident that happened in The Bronx a week earlier, according to records. He was released without bail in the case.

He was busted in the borough again March 5 and slapped with trespassing summons, according to court records.

And most recently, he was arrested March 9 in Manhattan and hit with criminal possession of a controlled substance, assault and attempted assault charges.

He was given a desk appearance ticket for the bust and ordered to return to court at the end of July.

A pregnant woman and her boyfriend were fatally shot inside their Staten Island home Monday by a convicted killer during a botched home robbery, ­sources said.

The suspect Philip Moreno, 45, allegedly stormed into the home in Arlington at about 5 p.m. and gunned down both victims in the living room, according to law-enforcement sources.

Ana Desousa, 33, who was pregnant, and her partner, Alafia Rodriguez, 46, were discovered dead on the floor by police.

Cops quickly found Moreno nearby allegedly carrying a gun and zip ties he apparently intended to use on the couple, the sources said.

A third victim, an unidentified 43-year-old woman, was also found in the living room with a gunshot wound to the back, cops said.

She was taken to Richmond University Medical Center, where she was in critical condition Monday night.

Authorities found an unharmed 2-year-old girl, believed to be the slain couple’s daughter, inside the home. The toddler was taken to the same hospital to be evaluated.

Moreno, who allegedly was carrying a 22-caliber Ruger when cops caught him, was arrested in July 1992 for the murder of ­Theodis Watson on Staten Island, sources said.

A year later, he copped to manslaughter and was jailed upstate in Sing Sing, according to the Staten Island Advance.

He was paroled in 2007, sources told The Post.

At a Monday-night press briefing, NYPD Assistant Chief Kenneth Corey said Moreno has several other gun-related convictions.

Charges against him were pending early Tuesday morning.

Corey told reporters that drugs were found at the scene.

“I can tell you that I observed narcotics and narcotics paraphernalia,” he said.

A police source said that the drugs were cocaine.

Corey also said a silencer was recovered at the scene.

Monday’s double homicide raises the total number of murders this year in the 121st Precinct to three.

A New York City nurse who recently recovered from the coronavirus was attacked on her way to work by a group of vicious youths who badly beat her and ran off with her purse, police sources and the victim told The Post.

Martha Toscano had just gotten out of the 6 train station on her way to work at Bellevue Hospital Wednesday around 10:30 p.m. when about 15 thugs ran her down and pummeled her to the ground.

“I thought they were going to kill me,” Toscano, 60, said in a phone call from her Queens studio Thursday.

FAUCI SAYS US CAN ‘APPROACH A SIGNIFICANT DEGREE OF NORMALITY’ WITHOUT CORONAVIRUS VACCINE

“They hit me on the head, on the face, I run and fell on the floor and they keep hitting me.”

The beatdown was interrupted by three men driving down the street, who screamed “Stop it, stop it,” Toscano recalled.

“Thank God these angels came, because nobody was in the street, nobody.”

The good Samaritans pulled the woman up and tried to chase the muggers to retrieve her purse, to no avail.

Police on Thursday arrested three of the alleged assailants, including two teenage girls, aged 14 and 15, and a 19-year-old man named Deshaun Harrison. All three suspects are residents of a nearby group home run by the city’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), sources said.

OVER 16K US INMATES HAVE BEEN RELEASED AS CORONAVIRUS CRISIS HAS PROGRESSED

Harrison — who has a lengthy rap sheet — was charged with robbery in the second degree, the sources said. An ACS spokeswoman said the agency couldn’t legally comment.

Toscano suffered scrapes and bumps all over her body but was able to escape the bruising without serious injuries.

“I have pain in all my body,” she said. “My back, my neck, bumps on my head, even on my elbows.”

The brave healthcare worker said she’d been out of work for two weeks after catching COVID-19 but had just gotten the OK to return to her job Friday.

“My first day back was Sunday… and then this,” Toscano said, breaking into tears.

Her three adult children had begged her to stop working, afraid that she would catch the deadly disease, she said.

After getting checked out at her hospital, Toscano said she returned home around 4 a.m. and had to call her landlord to get into her apartment, since her keys — as well as her ID and credit cards — were in the purse the thugs swiped.

Toscano was recovering at home with her fiance, adding that she didn’t know when she would return to work because of how terrified she was.

“I’m so afraid,” she said.

NYPD has 5 suspects — and motive — in beating of 15-year-old Brooklyn girl

Westlake Legal Group 93e4ce63-robbery-2-NYPD NYPD has 5 suspects — and motive — in beating of 15-year-old Brooklyn girl New York Post Natalie O'Neill Larry Celona Joe Marino fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc article 1e214590-1d5e-54d5-baac-2122b71065ac

Police were questioning five suspects and have a motive in the vicious mob beating of a 15-year-old girl on a Brooklyn street, law enforcement sources said Friday.

Cops were grilling the teenage boys in Crown Heights Friday after a group of teens savagely attacked the girl Thursday — as retaliation for a fight she got into earlier in the day, according to the sources.

The caught-on-camera beating unfolded after the girl allegedly beat up another girl earlier in the day at school, according to the sources.

HORRIFIC VIDEO: VICIOUS NEW YORK CITY MUGGING CAUGHT ON CAMERA

The group of teenage attackers were allegedly friends with the girl who the victim had tussled with, law enforcement sources said.

Stunning surveillance footage video shows the teens — many of them boys — storming the girl, jumping on her and stomping on her head as she lay helplessly on the sidewalk.

One of the teens then snatched the Air Jordans off her feet before the group bolted, according to cops and the footage.

The victim was rushed to a hospital with head trauma and later released, officials said.

The five boys turned themselves in with their parents earlier Friday, according to a law enforcement source. Their names and ages were not immediately clear and no charges have been filed as of early Saturday morning.

Fashion industry titan Peter Nygard’s Times Square office raided in sex-trafficking probe, report says

The FBI and NYPD Tuesday morning raided the Time Square offices of Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard as part of a sex-trafficking investigation, officials said.

Nicholas Biase, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office in Manhattan, confirmed to The Post that the raid was carried out but would not elaborate or provide details.

Photos from the scene show federal agents and city cops swarming throughout the company’s Broadway headquarters, and hauling away at least a half-dozen cardboard boxes from the building.

Nygard and his company, Nygard International, have been under investigation for months after several women accused the 78-year-old of sexually assaulting them in his Lyford Cay estate in the Bahamas, sources told The Post.

The ritzy retreat was once featured on “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” ABC News reported.

Tuesday’s raid comes on the heels of a federal lawsuit filed Feb. 13 against Nygard and his company by 10 women who accuse the Canadian businessman of a “decades-long sex-trafficking scheme” — among them a 15-year-old girl.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN IS ‘FLABBERGASTED BY THE VERDICT,’ DEFENSE ATTORNEY SAYS

According to the lawsuit, Nygard regularly hosted sex- and alcohol-laced gatherings called “pamper parties” at the Bahamian estate and in California, where young girls were allegedly subjected to depraved fetishes.

The parties were “both to promote the Nygard company’s brand and facilitate commercial sex acts,” according to the lawsuit.

Lawyers for the women who sued said they have “over 100 witnesses” in the case that include “dozens of victims.”

Jewish man attacked in NYC by 2 women after trying to record anti-Semitic tirade, report says

Two female attackers yelled “F— you Jew” and “I will kill you Jews” at a Brooklyn man before shoving him to the ground when he tried to film their anti-Semitic screed, law enforcement sources and witnesses said Wednesday.

The two African American women approached the 22-year-old Hasidic victim in Broadway Triangle where they began taunting him with anti-Semitic slurs, the law enforcement source said.

The first woman began yelling at the victim before the second woman grabbed his cell phone, broke it in half and threw it to the ground, the source said.

NYPD cop in coma after struck by chair in nail-salon melee; suspect killed

A minor arrest in a Brooklyn nail salon spun wildly out of control Friday night — leaving a cop fighting for his life from head injuries after shooting dead a berserk T-shirt vendor who’d struck him in the face with a chair, police said.

The injured officer, a 21-year-veteran of the force whose name was not released, remained in a medically induced coma Friday night, authorities said.

The mayhem began at about 5:40 p.m. when a panhandler walked into the Goldmine nail salon on Mother Gaston Boulevard near Sutter Avenue in Brownsville and began urinating in the shop.

KANSAS OFFICER WHO KILLED MAN DURING ‘SWATTING’ CALL SUES CITY FOR LOST WAGES

The NYPD veteran and his rookie partner happened to be passing by in a patrol van, and were waved inside the store by disgusted workers.

But as the two cops arrested the alleged urinator — who also had an open warrant for criminal mischief — a T-shirt peddler from outside the shop burst in and confronted the officers, police said.

The peddler, identified by sources as Kwesi Ashun, 33, of Brooklyn, grabbed a chair during the struggle and swung it into the head of the veteran cop, NYPD Chief of Patrol Rodney Harrison said.

The rookie officer zapped Ashun with a Taser during the melee, but it didn’t slow his attack, police said.

So the veteran cop pulled his gun, firing at Ashun six times and hitting him at least once, in the head, authorities said.

Medics responded and rushed the injured officer to Brookdale Hospital.

Ashun was declared dead at the scene and the rookie officer was brought to Kings County Hospital to be treated for ringing in his ears.

“Once again we had police officers responding to a call for help from the public and was set upon,” Pat Lynch, head of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, fumed in a press conference after the shooting.

“This police officer spent his career in our busiest precincts serving the community. And he was set upon. For no reason!” he added.

Residents of the neighborhood described the shot man as a fixture on the block, an entrepreneur who got by selling T-shirts.

State Assemblywoman Latrice Walker happened to be walking near the shop before the scene unfolded, and was even approached by the vendor for a sale.

“I interacted with him moments before this took place. He asked me if I would be interested in buying the T-shirts he was selling,” Walker told The Post.

“He was always a peaceful young man,” Walker added of the man who was killed. “He was promoting a business he was trying to kick off.”

Ashun peddled T-shirts he designed and hand-embroidered himself, according to an Instagram page promoting his wares.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman faces swarm of cops with ‘guns drawn’ after mistaken for car thief

Brian Cashman was swarmed by a group of Connecticut police officers who drew their firearms on the Yankee general manager Friday when he was apparently mistaken for an armed car thief, The Post has learned.

The 52-year-old GM of the Bronx Bombers was driving his white Jeep Wrangler from Yankee Stadium to Connecticut after it was reported stolen last Saturday, according to team sources.

The NYPD had found his vehicle abandoned in the Bronx and returned it to him earlier this week.

Cashman was attempting to get to the Norwalk Police Department to have his car processed for evidence on Friday when he stopped at a gas station in Darien.

“And that’s when apparently the circumstances radically changed,” Cashman told The Post.

“I had a welcoming committee descend upon me as I pulled out of that gas station.”

According to Cashman, Darien cops were already “responding to someone in a white Jeep that was brandishing a gun in a local doctor’s office.”

To make matters worse, when Darien police ran Cashman’s license plates, the vehicle came up stolen because “the NYPD never took me off the stolen car list,” he said.

As Cashman pulled out of the gas station as many as five patrol cars zoned in on him and between six to nine officers got out of their cars with their “guns drawn,” he said.

“They executed a very tactful interception,” Cashman said.

“They’re clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards them…they were executing their duty.”

Cashman said he was told to “not make any rash movements” as he exited his Jeep.

“They searched my car, asked for my ID,” he said. “I explained what was going on.”

“They’re clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards them…they were executing their duty.”

— Brian Cashman, New York Yankees general manager

Cashman said the dramatic ordeal took roughly 15 minutes before he was back in his car being escorted by Darien police to the Norwalk Police Department.

“They went through their process,” Cashman said, adding that he was escorted to the police department because “it was possible I would be tripped up again” since his car was still reported stolen.

Surprisingly Cashman said “I knew exactly what I was in for” when the Darien cops closed in on him because shortly before that he got a call from Westchester County police about his stolen car.

“They called my cell while I was driving and I tripped up something on my drive up,” he said.

“They asked me if I was driving my vehicle because they got a hit on my stolen car driving up the Hudson.”

According to Cashman, he reported his Jeep stolen last Sunday morning with the Norwalk Police Department and on Tuesday the NYPD called him saying his car was found abandoned in the Bronx.

The vehicle was towed to a local auto shop where he could pick it up.

“I retrieved it on Wednesday and I called Norwalk [police],” he said.

“They wanted to process it for evidence…I told them I can get them the car Friday.”

Cashman said he’s “curious” how the car he had returned to him and even paid the towing fee for when it was still listed as stolen.

“My vehicle should have been removed [from the stolen database] before being returned to me,” he said.

“Someone did not remove it from the stolen list…it’s a mistake, but at least nothing harmful came from that.”

A law enforcement source told The Post that the NYPD should have contacted cops in Darien and alerted them that the car was found in order for the alarm to be removed.

“The alarm should’ve been removed before he received the car,” the source added.

Darien police did not return a request for comment on Friday.

Cashman said that there was a positive to his wild experience.

“The public should take encouragement when someone is in a stolen vehicle they’re not going to get very far,” he said.

“I have high respect for all law enforcement. They do an amazing job whether you’re in Connecticut and New York City — and sometimes unique circumstances can occur.”

As for Cashman’s Jeep Wrangler, “I’ve been told it’s officially off the [stolen] list.”

A “brazen” lone gunman opened fire at a massive Brownsville, Brooklyn, block party on Saturday night, leaving a 38-year-old man dead and 11 others injured, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The gunfire erupted just before 11 p.m. as the annual two-day “Old Timers Day” party was ending and thousands of attendees were leaving, the sources said.

The violence was preliminarily blamed on a single shooter who remained at large early Sunday, and who had begun blasting into the crowd despite a contingent of some 100 cops monitoring the event, the sources said.

“I’ve never heard of 12 people shot in one incident — ever,” one veteran investigator told The Post of the bloodshed at Mendoza Park at Christopher and Hegeman avenues.

“This is one of the worst, most brazen shootings I’ve ever seen.”

“I’ve never heard of 12 people shot in one incident — ever.  This is one of the worst, most brazen shootings I’ve ever seen.”

The injured were rushed to nearby Brookdale Hospital and to Kings County Hospital.

By midnight, detectives had found one abandoned firearm and were combing the ground for more evidence among hundreds of scattered beer bottles, cans, cups and other debris.

The party is in its 56th year and features concerts, food and exhibitions.

Attendees travel from across the country to attend.

“I heard shots and I ducked,” said one 66-year-old man who was at the party.

“When I stuck my head up, and the smoke cleared, it was pure pandemonium,” said the man, who asked not to be named.

“It was chaos,” said Gary Miller, 60, a vendor at the party.People were breaking down, having outbursts,” he said.

“We were enjoying the evening and all of a sudden shots rang out,” he remembered.

“Shots rang out and the crowd was already dispersing and you heard about 9 to 11 shots and everyone was running and scattering for cover.”

“We had a terrible shooting in Brownsville tonight that shattered a peaceful neighborhood event,” Mayor de Blasio tweeted at close to 1 a.m.

The shooting happened in the same precinct where the first of four water-dousing attacks on cops broke out on the previous Saturday.
