Police in East Harlem are looking for the goon who stabbed a woman for no reason as she took her trash out to the curb last week.

The NYPD released images on Wednesday morning of the perpetrator sought for the March 21 stabbing, which occurred at 8 p.m. in the area of East 102nd Street and Lexington Avenue.

According to law enforcement sources, the suspect attacked the 32-year-old woman, a resident of a nearby apartment building, as she brought her garbage to the curbside.

Without making any statements, cops said, the brute pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the shoulder. He then fled the scene on foot, heading southbound along Lexington Avenue.

The incident was reported to the 23rd Precinct. EMS rushed the woman to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was listed in serious but stable condition.

The suspect’s images were taken by surveillance cameras from inside a local subway station. He’s shown wearing a black ski cap, a black mask, a gray hooded sweatshirt, a black jacket, blue jeans and black sneakers.
