Detectives are looking for the suspect who stabbed a man to death on a Harlem street Saturday morning.

Police said the victim was attacked just before 12:13 a.m. on July 23 in front of an apartment house at 39 West 130th St.

Based on a preliminary description, police determined that the victim got into a dispute with an unknown male prior to the attack.

During the argument, cops said, the unidentified perpetrator pulled out a sharp object and stabbed the man in the chest. He then fled to parts unknown.

Officers from the 32nd Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the stabbing, found the 27-year-old male victim with a stab wound to his torso.

EMS rushed the victim to Harlem Hospital, where he died a short time later. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.

So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
