Cops are looking for the knife-wielding robber who stabbed a 41-year-old woman and robbed her in Woodside early on Sunday morning.

Law enforcement sources said the attack occurred at 2:55 a.m. on May 12 near the corner of Queens Boulevard and 58th Street, close to the KFC restaurant.

According to police, the victim was walking through the area when she was approached from behind by the suspect, who was described in an NBC New York report as a man wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt.
