Cops continued to search Friday for a deranged husband who hacked off his pregnant wife’s right arm below her biceps, and cut off two fingers on her left hand at their Brooklyn home.

Yang’s sister Mei Yang sobbed as she told reporters from Chinese language outlets on Friday that Lu grabbed his wife’s arm and choked her on a recent night because she refused to have sex with him after he came home from work.

She said Lu entered the U.S. illegally from the Fujian province in China in 2013 and applied for political asylum, which he received in December.

Yang remained in critical but stable condition Friday at Bellevue Hospital, according to police.

Doctors were able to reattach her arm, a cop source said.

A day after the attack in the cramped three-bedroom Sunset Park apartment that the victim, her husband and her daughter share with two other families, blood still spattered the walls and ceiling of the family’s tiny bedroom. A pool of blood had collected on the floor by the closet.

Mei Yang said she tried to visit her sister at Bellevue, but she was turned away for reasons that remain unclear.

Cops describe Lu as Asian, about 5 feet 8 inches and 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
