Lizseh Casserly, 32 (pictured), was fatally stabbed in the chest and the neck at 2.25 am on Saturday after she and a male companion got too close to a Brooklyn homeless man’s tent

A Brooklyn mother-of-two was stabbed to death by a crazed man enraged that she and her male companion got too close to his tent while passing a roadside Brooklyn homeless encampment as they walked home after a birthday party, police say.

Lizseh Casserly, 32, was stabbed in the chest and the neck by the homeless man, and her 36-year-old friend, who was out drinking with her at 2.25am on Saturday, was stabbed in the back when he tried to help her.

Both victims were rushed from the crime scene at the intersection of Herkimer Place and Perry Place, Bedford-Stuyvesant, to Kings County Hospital, where Casserly was pronounced dead. Her companion, who has not been named, is in stable condition, according to the New York Police Department.

The unhinged man fled the scene. Although police recovered his bloodied knife, he has yet to be named or apprehended. 

Two white cars parked beside the homeless encampment were smeared with blood after the incident. 

One of the car owners was stunned to find their vehicle splattered with blood.

‘I could have wiped it down, but I didn’t come prepared for blood,’ they said, calling the murder a ‘tragedy with no reason.’

‘Thank God it didn’t happen when we were here.’ 

Arrest rates at New York City homeless shelters shot up by more than 50 percent in the third quarter compared to the second quarter. 

Between July 1 and September 30, 368 individuals living at homeless shelters were arrested for felonies or misdemeanors, compared to just 185 between April 1 and June 30th.

The NYPD said on Tuesday there have been no new leads on the killer’s identity. 

Casserly, a pharmacy technician, is survived by a 14-year-old son, Isaiah, and an 11-year-old daughter, Imanie. 

Migna Rios, 61, told the Daily News that her killer should turn himself in for their sakes: 

‘It’s not fair,’ she said. ‘He took their mother’s life.’

Rios, who said she raised Casserly since she was six years old, said the slain woman’s daughter is ‘expressing her feelings’ and her son is ‘very distraught because he was close to his mother.’  

A GoFundMe was set up to cover the children’s expenses – according to organizer Jessica Vasquez, Casserly was the sole provider in their household.

 Casserly’s neighbor, 61-year-old Brenda Goodwin, said she ‘felt sorry for the kids’ and couldn’t get the young mother’s senseless death off her mind.

‘It keeps playing in my mind,’ she said. ‘This world now — we’re living in a mad world.’

Goodwin said she was anxious to learn more details about the confrontation. 

‘She was very friendly and helpful to me,’ Goodwin said. ‘She would clean up the hallway… She had a heart. She didn’t deserve what she got.’   

Relative Tommy Medina wrote that no one ‘could ever say anything bad’ about Casserly in a tribute on Facebook: 

‘Your presence alone spoke volumes and touching the spirit never lies…  as a family member I love ya stay shining wherever you go.’

‘May you rest in peace and turn up with the angels above,’ wrote Jessica Rain, Casserly’s sister. ‘I love you #justiceforliz #JusticeForMySister’
