A man chopped off the arm of his pregnant wife in a gruesome Brooklyn attack on Thursday, according to police.

The 31-year-old victim was inside her Sunset Park home — waiting on her 7-year-old son to get finished with school — when her husband allegedly snapped, cops said.

Using a steak knife, he attacked the woman around 12:20 p.m., severing her right arm at the bicep and two fingers on her left hand, police said.

A neighbor heard what was going on and called 911.

Responding officers arrived to a grisly scene — with the victim bleeding profusely and in critical condition.

Her husband was nowhere to be found.

Paramedics rushed the woman to Bellevue Hospital, where she was placed in a medically-induced coma.

Her husband was still on the loose as of 3:30 p.m.

Detectives said they’re searching for her 35-year-old husband, Yong Lu. He is described as 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds.

Information has been obtained that Lu attempted to solicit a bus driver to allow him to hide in a luggage compartment and cross him into Canada.

The bus driver refused.

Lu was believed to be in the Niagara Falls, NY area on Friday June 22.

Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers Buffalo at (716) 867-6161.
