A man was stabbed to death at a Lower East Side skate park early Friday, cops said. 

The victim, 27, identified by police sources as a Bronx resident, was discovered inside the LES Coleman Skate Park, at Monroe and Pike streets, around 7:40 a.m., police said. 

He was found on the pavement with multiple stab wounds all over his body, police said. 

He was rushed to NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

The suspected murder weapon, which appears to be a homemade knife, was discovered nearby, according to police sources. It was unclear if anyone was hurt.

In January, the victim — whose name was not immediately released — threw a 68-year-old man to the ground and punched a kicked him during a dispute over “pasta sauce,” the sources said. 

He was also transported to the hospital from Washington Square Park in March — bleeding from his face and left ear, police sources said.

He previously told police he suffers from social anxiety, according to the sources.
