Police are looking for this man, who is wanted in connection with a vicious stabbing in Brooklyn Park on Wednesday.

Officers were called to an assault in the 7500 block of Kentucky Avenue and when they arrived, found a victim who had suffered multiple stab wounds to the head and face.

The suspect fled before officers arrived and still hasn't been caught, but he has been identified as Junior Lawrence.

Police said he was driving a bright blue 2019 Toyota C-HR, which was located on Friday morning. Lawrence, however, was nowhere to be found.

He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, gray jogging pants, black gloves and white shoes. 

Police are looking for help finding Lawrence, and advise anyone who sees him to call 911 straight away.

They also advise not to approach or contact him on your own.

Anyone who have information as to his whereabouts should call Brooklyn Park PD on 763-493-8222.
