The NYPD is on the hunt for the suspect in an apparently random fork stabbing in Manhattan early last month.

The incident happened in front of a Salvation Army store in Chelsea on April 10, though police only released images of the suspect on Wednesday.

The NYPD released this photo May 5 of the suspect in an April 10 fork stabbing in Chelsea.

Authorities say the suspect approached a 50-year-old man in front of the store, in the 200 block of Eighth Avenue, and began stabbing him in the arm with a fork before fleeing down the street.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
