The hunt is on for the man who stabbed a 22-year-old man to death on a Brooklyn street over the weekend.

Police say officers found Giovanni Rodriguez stabbed in the stomach and right arm around 3 p.m. Sunday at the corner of 4th Avenue and 57th Street in Sunset Park.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Rodriguez' uncle says his nephew had an argument with his attacker and was stabbed after going back to apologize.

"This is unfair what happened. You know what I'm saying? First of all, about a year ago he lost a brother. Three years ago he lost his father, and December 5th he lost his grandmother. So this is a shame," said Robert Medina, the victim's uncle.

Police say the man who stabbed Rodriguez is in his 50s or 60s.

Another man was also slashed during the attack and was treated at a local hospital.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
